I stripped my Sciaenochromis fryeri (although that is in question now since her brother looks like a hybrid) last night. She is only around 7 months old and this was her first time holding. I had to remove her from the main tank at the first signs of holding since the males would not leave her alone and she was striping badly. I had expected not to get any viable fry since she is so young and I had to move her early. But, to my husband's and my surprise, I removed 54 babies last night. I can still see traces of a yolk sack, but all are swimming and doing god 15+ hours afterward. Is this common to have such a high number? Everything I read said that first time holder either spit the eggs, swallow them, or have low numbers. Just curious as to what I should expect in the future from her and the other females (if I decide to keep breeding).
