Not too long ago, I was amazed to find a clutch of twenty six eggs from my wild caught red trivitattus pair. I know they don't reproduce much in captivity.
So I took the eggs out of the viv and watched them closely. I lost three eggs before the rest hatched out.
I have been trying to take very good care of them as they developed. I don't use any kind of heater for them. They are kept in individual eight ounce containers in plastic drawer cabinets.
I feed them regularly with spirulina at first, then moving on to tropical fish flakes and recently, tadpole bites. I'm using RO water and have a bit of java moss in each cup.
This morning, when I went to check them, i found three dead. I have no idea what caused them to die and don't want to lose any more.
They all have back legs and some were starting to sprout front legs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I will try feeding the Formula 1, which I have for my reef tanks. The question though, is why only the trivs are dieing? Does anyone know if they have a higher than normal mortality rate? I haven't been able to find much info on them, since it seems like so few people have had eggs from their WC trivs.
