I would definitely build the cave. I think they need it to hang there spawn. They always dart to it when they get startled also.

Tranfered the egg mass into my hatch out tank. And they started hatching. I was expecting them to hatch after lights out.

All the little ones are gone. I was out of town and do not know what happened. Hopefully they will spawn again.

It happens. What is the time between spawns? Mine used to spawn every 19-21 days.
