Re: Moving fry

Michael, from my own experience, Momma and Poppa will eat the kiddies when
they've been free-swimming for about one week to ten days.  So, in a couple
of days, take the parents out.  I know it's difficult to imagine that these
wonderful parents, who take turns looking after their fry, would do such a
thing.  But they do.  :(

I've tried all kinds of things, like covering the front of the tank with
newspaper, hoping that they ate the fry only because they were disturbed by
my moving around in front of the tank, but no go.  They ate them anyway.  So
next time around, Momma and Poppa are getting the old heave ho.
