I noticed my "hara" female holding yesterday. This is my first mouthbrooder spawning. Can anyone give me some advice on how to proceed?

One advantage of waiting 18 days is it gives you two weeks to get a new filter established (by running it on the old tank) and avoid the need to cycle your fry tank. Not to mention, the fry will be mature and not need a tumbler.
That's what I've done, lets her eat again a week earlier!RRasco said:I just separate her until about day 18, or I may just wait until I see free swimming fry. Once I see the first couple, I strip the mother and return her to the main tank. Have fun, these fry are amazing.
