Should I separate a crawdad from its fry?
 
Sorry in advance but I really couldnt decide whether to post in Inverts or Fish Breeding but its a question and it needs askin so w/e.:-P

I was recently told that I should separate a parent from its fry at around 4 weeks of age or the parent will eventually eat them. Truth be told its been roughly 5 weeks since they have hatched and I have seen them swim around freely but I have not personally seen this(the incestral carnage) happen. I cant really find enough info on the net so I would feel safer asking someone with experience if I should leave them be or do as I was told and separate them?

For most species you should seperate them.
