I have a Red dragon Blood that just spit all her fry out today for the first time. right now i dont have space to put the fry to there own tank and the Mom and the fry are living in one tank by them self. will the mom eat her fry? i dont want to put the mom back with the male till they i get more tanks. so my question is can i keep the mom till the fry grow?

The mom will eat the fry...get her out of the tank. Why not put her back with the male?

They hold them in their mouths for 28 days...that is the protection phase.
