I never strip but not because letting them spit naturally is required. You can strip if you want...I just don't see the need. Isolate the holding mom in the fry tank when she has been holding 18 days.

That sounds like a better idea the mother will never eat her babies will she or will she after a certain time?

The mother will eat her babies, but not for the first 24 to 48 hours.

You never did post the tank size and the dimensions but I see from your other posts you mentioned a 450L tank. Can you post the dimensions of the tank please?
