I've done it at least a dozen times and have only had 2 things go wrong. Once i did it too early and the fish couldnt swim so i put them in a small tank with a big HOB that moved them around.
The other time i accidential dropped the fish into the tank the babies were in and she thrashed around and smashed a couple of them.

Its easy after a few times. For me i wait till day 24 or close to it if i dont know for sure. I cut a qtip in half and use the hard middle part to open there mouths. Then i dunk them about 3 times to make sure i get them all. Then i put the female right back into the main tank she came from.
