Congrats on the brood. They're an interesting fish to watch, given the rituals for mating and the later ways they typically herd their young around the tank. The problem after you've done this a few times is what to do with all of the fry. A separate growout tank helps, but this just buys you time while the adults keep on procreating. I separated 20 or so fry from 2-3 mths ago that are doing nicely and will give most of them away eventually. Of course, there is now a new small brood with the parents though....

Good luck.
