Finally got free swimming fry about 100 or so, with this pair I have to remove the female as soon as she lays, he will beat her up if I don't. He is a excellent parent, any time I put my hand in the tank for tank maint. I am amazed at how much force he can generate hitting my hand. They are about 10 days old and they swarm all around him as he takes them around the tank. The wife finally has angel baby's.
