GREAT news about the eggs/babies!!! I have approx. 25ish babies. Plus I gave a few to my daughter-in-law for her 38 gal. tank. She & the kids LOVE them!! :) I have NO idea what happened with Ms. Marbles - it just makes me so sad! I suppose the molting time is the most vulnerable time, huh?
Sorry about Ms Marbles, and sorry about the late reply, I haven't been active lately. At least you have a bunch of Ms. Marbles Jr's. I beleive my crayfish either have eggs or recently molted, as I have not seen any of them out in over a month (though I do see their feelers sticking out of their PVC pipes. Any Idea how many babies you have?
Those crustacean/ vegetable flakes sound good. Crayfish aren't very picky, the most important part of feeding is mantaining the balance between nutrients. These crayfish like 60% plant matter and 40% meat. They also love anacharis as a treat!
