A few eeks ago I purchased a 110g tank for an African tank. I moved my fish and filters from my 65 over (2 tinfoild barbs and two convicts) and kept them I to cycle it while I waited for the new fish. I had the tank decorated in rock and sand they way I wanted it for my Africans. Now its nearly a month later and I'm ready for my africans, but the convicts had other ideas. Apparently they took to their new tank and have decided to spawn. They spawned yesterday.
If I remove the parents will the eggs hatch?
If the eggs hatch how long will the fry survive?
If the fry survive without the parents is it safe for the mbuna I plan on getting, to eat them.
I don't want grown cons in my African tank. And I'd rather not remove the rock to get to the eggs.

Yes they will hatch if they were fertilized
so long as there's a food source , forever. If not , then a few days to a week.
Yes it's safe for them to eat them , just not on a regular basis.

I found some Convict fry living in my canister filter. They can live just about any where. :lol:
