Maybe the water is too acidic then? I'm not sure what could be the issue in your case then. Does co2 really drop the pH that low? I use co2 and havent noticed anything that drastic.

Yes that is true. The only problem is that sometimes when the female does not look full of eggs she is too hard to tell apart from a male. I believe i found another way to tell them apart though.

Here is the setup. I dont think it will be that hard for the male to find the female. Also, I just spotted a molted skin/shell.

I had bad timing with feeding. Might have waited to feed too late but yes I use microworms. I hear you're supposed to feed them one day or so after they hatch after their yolk sack is gone.
