Frontosa is still holding after 38 days.

I have Front that is still holding after 38 days. We had moved her into a 20 long nursery tank at 25 days and she seems healthy. She even eats a little without opening her mouth more than a slit. Is this normal? Should I strip at this point? I think she is a first time mom. I have only had the group for a couple of months.

Five weeks is average. You could strip or wait.

I really wish someone would give me a million dollars....just a little experiment. It worked with the Front.

That's really cool. My fronts are in a drought currently. I get holding females but the males are not doing their job. The eggs are not getting fertilized.
