Now I need to find a way to mate them without getting the female killed :P The male seems more interested in running around, same with the female ;)

Any idea when they emerged? Are they wild caught? Try feeding them!

They are WC and have been eating of watermelon and jelly. They were WC according to mister Masashi, so a friend reccomended I should not keep them together as it might be mated already. So I put her in the egg laying box and she is far down in her substrate already :)

Thank you, not sure if i should try to take out eggs i dont trust i am good enough of a breeder to do that, as i am very new! I will wait until they hatch? How long could that be? 3-4 months?

3-5 months, then you could start separating larvae into their own containers.
