well i saw one a few times. i dont know if it was the same one or if it was 3 different babies. I saw one swimming through the spaces between the small rocks. I thought i had more time. i was gonna go to petco and buy a separate tank or something in a couple of weeks. i just put the thing over the intake and i checked the filter to see if i saw any unlucky babies and the filter was clean so they're either still hiding in the rocks at the bottom of the tank or they've been eaten. I dont even know when the labor started so i have no clue how many babies came out, or if she just started or is almost finish. She still has a huge gravid spot so im guessing there's still plenty of babies in her. thank you so much for helping me to not overly freak out! is there anything else i should do? should i be aware of anything?
