Watch out on the water changes, you can induce molting and if a berried momma molts she can lose those eggs and die (since it would be a premature molt). Now I say this and I'm doing 100% water changes daily on my little ill berried OEBT and this is day 10 of doing that. BUT it is something you want to keep in the back of your mind. Get your new water as close as possible to what's in the tank, and make it either the exact same temp or a degree warmer (colder temp water is what generally induces molting besides change of parameters). Other than that CONGRATS!
