Congratz, Well lets start from the top from my own personal experience.

1) separate from parents
2) Use a water heater to make temp approx 82'F
3) I feed every 2nd day on a mix of Redworms(cut up) an Hikari Bloodworms.
4) Keep feeder guppies or someother non agressive fish in the tank to keep bacteria levels up. (guppies are just really clean fish)
5) MOST IMPORTANT, do a water change 10% every 2nd day (or inbetween feedings). If you neglect this step you may start noticeing fungus on them and they will eventually die.
6) I use Liveplants in the water and I always recomend them.
7) Easiest to keep clean w/ a barebottom setup
8) Enjoy your new little guys, and keep us posted on your progress.

If you have anyother questions let us know. Goodluck
