Stripped a female Ikola this evening of 10 fry (after 30 days holding) and added them to my fry tank which contains approx. 24 Ikolas of varying sizes from half an inch up to just under 2". Carried on reassembling the main tank and when I checked on the babies about half an hour later I was rather gutted to see seven little corpses being munched by some of the older young. I didn't realise that such small fish could be so hostile towards other young fish. They woud have stood a better chance of survival if I had left them in the main tank (which is what I will be doing until I have sold some of the older fry.) I have yet to find the other three. Hopefully they have hidden and will survive.
