So I know the basics of taking care of newly hatched res babies, but was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers of how I should care for them, or what I can do for them in the first few days after they hatch. My res eggs have been incubating for 68 days now, so Im thinking within the next week or so they should be hatching!!

Set them up like an adult, but smaller scale. couple inchs of water, a basking area, and heated water. Keep the temps in the upper 70's. Other then that, wait for them to show you that they are ready to eat after a couple days. Mine started "nipping" at the plants in the tank, and it didn't take long after that, that they started attacking the wax worms I started them on.
