Blue, you think since they are now free swimming (though super tiny), will she move them some more? They all seem very happy in the upside down clay pot with a cave entrance to it. Did a PWC yesterday as the nitrite levels were off the chart because of the food that mom and dad don't see and ignore if it hits the gravel
Thought she was going to move them after we carefully did the water change - but I turned off the lights and covered her corner of the tank for privacy and after about an hour or more, she settled down and decided to stay put.
I just need a clean tank though - and am totally confounded as to how to keep it clean (and the leftover food cleaned up) without upsetting them. Of course, another user had the idea that it might make mom and dad a pair again if they had someone else to direct the protection towards. But you still think I should wait? If so, till the fry are how old?
Herefishy - yes they were a proven pair when I bought them - in fact they laid and fertilized the very night I brought them home! Talk about your instant family!!
