I attempted to strip my female today and I was successful. I had 1 fry come out with the egg sack still attached. I stoped cause it went to the bottom of the container and just laid there. If it did move it just went in circles. Is this ok or did I try to strip her to early?

Too early. Put the Mom back with the fry and maybe she will pick it up again.

Thanks. She picked it back up. I put here back in the tank. What is a good time to strip her? I read 14 days . Thats when I tried to strip her.

I wait 3 weeks as the fry seem to be mostly free-swimming. If you strip when they have egg sacks, just use an egg tumbler and you will be fine.
