Exactly. I've been waiting until females have been holding for two weeks, then I move them to a separate tank and let them spit there. I provide a pile of small rocks so that the fry can hide there until I remove the mom from the tank. BTW, congrats on the hold.aroussel said:Yep..shes holding. About 21 days before she spits. Don't stress her out by trying to catch her too soon, because she may spit way too early. Give her about 2 weeks before you try to move her. Congrats Marc!
I've seen the exact same thing. Sometimes mine will swim right up to a pellet up high in the tank and follow it all the way down to the sand as it sinks. It gives me a chuckle even though I feel kind of bad for her.ashilli48 said:Does she act likes she hungry during feeding time, rushing up to the food but not eating?
