My fern reproduced! these tiny ferns are about 2cm big, I've separated them into a different container with same water from the tank, they are growing very slow, need information on how to grow them. There are a few pores left, can I expect them to grow out into more ferns? At what size should I attach them to bogwood and how?

There are two ways a fern will propagate. Once when there is lush growth with excellent conditions ,this propagation is slow and second when their survival is threatened because of some bad parameters.
During bad times in the wild the fern leaves will dissaociate from the parent plant and float away to regenerate in better conditions. This propagation is faster.

Hamza, I hope you didn't manually detach the leaf ends as the daughter plants will automatically do that, if the conditions are right, you'll see tons of little plants floating around......all the best, its a pretty easy plant to grow....and I've been really rough on mine, leaving them in no light, low light, poor water conditions over extended periods of time and they've come out the other end just fine.......
