Yellow Electric has Eggs (Spawn) what should i do?

Hi there
Iíve male and a female yellow electric and they have spawned 7 days ago! And I saw some eggs on femaleís mouth (Pregnant I think J ) I have put her in a separate tank with all needed facilities alone but after 7 days she doesnít eat any foods!! and hides in rocks!! Last night I saw babies in her mouth (there were some eyes in her mouth an moving)
What should I do for her? She doesnít eat anything!! I afraid she dies from hunger!!!
How many days she will keep her babies in her mouth? What they will eat in these days??!!

Would you please help me?

seeing how they had spawned a week or so ago, what you are seeing in her mouth is the eggs and she is tumbling them to help with incubation. while she is holding the eggs she will not eat and she will be just fine, she's got about 2 - 3 weeks to go yet. once you see free swimming fry then start feeding mama, feed her for about 2 days to make sure she's got her strength back before putting her back with the other adult fish.

Thanks for your help

so there is no need for striping the fry out?! the will come out themselves and no worry for mama's hunger?

I feel better now :)

when they hatch in her mouth and are ready she will release them and they will be swimmers.
