Well, she did it!.. She spawned again, holding a mouthful... the fry from the first batch (only 6) are all around the tank, by themselves... mother doesn't herd them anymore and Dad makes believe that they don't exist. At least he's not eating them!
..these fry are small (maybe two weeks old). I'm going to try to siphon them out, without hurting them!!!.. wish me luck..
