I want to move my 3 adult convicts and the baby fry of one of them to a new 45g. Is it wize to do so while the fry are so young (a week old) or should I wait?

You can move them. I have done it several times.

Ok the question is, how? How would I move the adults then the babies and make sure that momma and babies reunite? Is there an actual way to do it properly

Get a bucket and vacuum them into bucket with parents. Of course net the parents but if the fry swim too fast you might have to net them too. I have also used light to my advantage. At night time turn off the lights in room and tank and take a flash light and shine it to a corner or into the net. For some reason the fry swim to the light.

So move momma first then should I wait for her to calm down first before I put the fry in the tank or will she notice then immediately when i put them in the tank?
