I have a 220 l grow out tank and a 50l both are cycled the 220 currently has about 100 also juveniles these are not mine so I'm quite looking forward to getting my own in a few days time thanks very much for responding but mainly it was questioning how I'm keeping the females in those nets I had a friend come over today there's a bit more experience than me and he told me is nothing to worry about remove the mother after a couple of days after she gives birth and raise the Fry in nets then look to move them to the grow out tankDJRansome said:Maybe you answered in another topic, but I still don't understand where the fry are going? And if you have enough tanks/room to raise the fry in a few days, why not just put each mom in her own tank where her fry will grow up?
Thanks for responding basically I'm good to do all of that I just don't want to strip them to be honest I have done it before and I just don't like it I would much prefer it if they would do it naturally and I'm hoping everything will go as planned so I'm hoping you think that's okCyphro said:If you went to the trouble to put them in there then I would just strip them out. I would keep those fry in the breeding net until they make 1.25 inches, not a separate uncycled tank. After that you can ship them off or put them in the tank, or whatever it is you intend to do with them.
For african cichlids usually you don't get a lot of culls but if you get some unhealthy looking ones you should do your unpleasant duty, especially if you are going to give these to someone else.
