Wait at least until day 18 to make sure you get free-swimming fry. You can probably go a little longer. She will naturally spit the fry somewhere between 21 and 30 days usually.dmpjr said:Should I strip her? If so, at what day? I have a 20 gallon tank up and running ready for them,
If the older fry are big enough to kill the younger fry, they probably will. I have done what you are talking about but the older fry were more like 2 months older, and they killed many of the new fry. So I think it will depend on how much the first fry grow before the new batch comes along. If you want to keep as many of these babies as possible you should plan on keeping them separate, just in case.tanli said:Can i safely put different batch(2 to 3 weeks intervals or more) of fry together?
I'm rather new in cichlids keeping..
