Jewels breeding!!!

well after my weekly water change i noted that 2 of my Jewels were really hanging out a lot and doing there dance.. last night my 5 year old said she way a "big mess of bumps on a rock" so i went to investigate and sure enough they laid a butt load of eggs and he went over to do his shaky shaky and now they are fanning away and keeping every one else clear of the spot.... i will update with pix tonight i hope but i wanted to ask a question or two...

can you (should you) remove the fry to a grow out tank after they are free swimming? i am worried that they may not get the food i have for them if they are at the bottom of a 72.....

in the future if they have another batch of eggs - could i remove hte rock and put it in a 5 gallon with an air stone under the eggs to have them hatch and start to raise them in that? just wan to get the best possible results in the future and not mess things up to bad along the way
