So I decided it was time to go at a bunch of my females last night! All but one chailosi (which I left alone at only 12 days) have been holding for 17-23 days. I stripped 1 demasoni, 2 yellow labs, 1 ps. chailosi, 1 albino socolofi, and my albino OB red zebra! So here's the tally:

16 demasoni
38 labs (16 & 22)
19 chailosi
14 socolofi
17 albino OB red zebra

Moms are all in the hospital and recovering well!

Add in the 3 week old 27 Met. Msobo and 26 Polit, and well... :dancing: Store credit, here I come! (seems I'll be needing a few more tanks!)

Wow Busy night, I have 3 yellow labs and a lethrinops holding right now, so in roughly 18 more days I will have an exciting night like yourself

Do they survive if you don't strip them ? I see fry every so often and the females look ragged. But I have so many rocks, it's hard to catch the females.

The babies survive if you let the mom's spit naturally, but not if you leave them in the adult tank. The adults eat the babies instantly.
