I try not to if I can help it - my main breeding tank is in my 'office' at 
home so I am with them most of the day and I can look out for potential 
aggression - usually everything is fine and with most of my dwarfs I leave 
both parents with the fry.  Exceptions being dicrossus filiamentosa where the 
female killed the male and 'first brood' apistogramma norberti where I really 
wanted some fry - 2nd brood will be left with parents to give them a chance 
of natural raising.
