Mixing Same Age Fry

Postby JVOvoiceover » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:22 pm

Quick question. If I have a couple of breeding pairs of Red Jewel Cichlids, and their eggs hatch at roughly the same time, Do the parents know the difference if I mix the fry together in one tank with one set of parents? Just looking to save space and not use another tank.

I would imagine they won't know the difference. Especially if you transfer the new fry when the parents are asleep.
