Congratulations! fresh born lohatsara look so great! cant wait to see my first one hatching. I would use a more naturalistic substrate. You can also put some small branches in, and some more bark that you can lean on one wall. Put a small water dish in, i would additionally mist the cage slightly every evening. Crickets shouldn't be larger than the width of the head. For temperature, i would say around 25C (not to high), with a night drop. But these are just suggestions; till now i didn't raise any juveniles of this species!

At first many congratulations...
You can keep them like alle other Paroeduras. Use Sand on the bottom and cork bark for hiding. Spray them every second day and give thme a samm cup of water in the box. The tempertures should vary between 23-27C and 20C at night. Crickets are to bis if they can not eat them :D ...small ones shoul work.
Give them enough Calcium to prevent problems!

Do you think i should take him off paper towels now? and do you think reptibark will be good for the substrate?
