Smile Krib fry

I ha ve a pair of kribensis cichlids that had babies. Only 10 of the 50 or so eggs hatched and the 10 eggs are now 3 week old fry. The kribs are the only fish in the tank. The parents are now starting to ignore the fry and the fry can eat by themselves and swim around. I have another comunity tank that they will live in but they are too small to live there. I could but them in a breeder net or their own 3 gallon tank, but im not sure if that would cause problems with the parents, what do you think? Any comments are much appreciated.

since no one decided to answer my question, I decided to remove the fry from the tank and they are all doing fine. I think the parents are ready to spawn again already :) They are crazy!

I couldn't answer as I didn't know the answer!
What size tank are the parents in? Do you have any pics??

Ooops. Sorry, I just saw your tank link. Still would like to see some pics.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
