    So my pair have been breeding like crazy and i have 5 or 6 inch long babies from the last spawn and now it looks like the new batch of babies are nearly half an inch long and the mom is hanging out with the dad again.
    Its a 75g tank with alot of plants and logs and rocks.
    What do i do with the babies. Will they be ok and just stay away from the mum with the bigger babies?
    Or will all the babies end up fighting?

    If the parents perceive the fry as a threat they may kill them. It sounds like there getting ready to breed again, are they doing the krib shimmy or getting there breeding color? I remove mine when they get around 1/4-1/2" or if the parents start breeding.
