Does anyone know how long they hold? They laid eggs on thurs and now have them in their mouths. Can you strip them like an african? Should i wait till they release them and siphon them out? Any advise? thanks
It took my Tapajos at least 3 tries probably 4 before I saw any fry. You can strip them but a tumbler will be useless with live fry with eggs sacs I would think. Its likely you will have a small amount of fry and they will be small + some will die. These fish breed every 3 weeks or so, I'd leave them to practice it for another month or two. After then if you still seen no fry... strip them.6stang9 said:I think I will strip the fry next time cause I lost the fry after them holding 3 days. It was only their 2nd spawn, still young. They are a group of 13 in a 6'x 2'x2'. There is also 20+ angelfish. I have stripped Africans for years, but usually after 3 weeks. I have stripped earlier and have a tumbler that I use for eggs or egg sacks. I just wasnt sure when to strip. Is 3 days too early? I guess your right I will just have to try and see what works for me. Thanks so much for your advise.
