Them spawning again quickly would work really well for me. I have some other fry that I'm really not wanting to feed because they are a jelly/con cross and I'd like to see what they'll look like as they grow up. I'm not sure if the male will fertilize three sets of eggs from three different females again.aspects said:siphoning out the fry is a relatively easy task. I have had to do this many times with my guapotes.
as soon as they are free swimming, suck them out with a hose, like you would during a WC, and put the other end of the tube into their new tank. . by leaving the parents undisturbed, they are more likely to breed again soon. probably very soon with convicts.
I like the idea of only taking half. Of course, since Karma ATE her babies the last time, maybe I oughtta let her get knocked around a bit Sorry, just kidding. I know, not funny:-Xbtate617 said:The easy way is like already mentioned BB, use your siphon during a wc. You could take them all or take half and leave the rest with the pair. The only thing to be careful with is if you take them all sometimes the male will beat on the female as he will want to breed again and it will take her a few weeks to be ready.
