Okay so i've had my 70 gallon tank cycled for about 2 weeks and yesterday i went and i picked up a breeding group of Sunshine peacocks. 1m-4f.  when i was floating them in the tank 10 mins later there was fry at the bottom of the bag! i guess one of the females were holding. but anyways this morning i wake up and look at them to see how their doing and i see one female has a bulge in her throat and is kind of shying away. is she holding? how long should i wait until l i strip her? thanks a lot

Yes I'd say that fish is holding but as for when to strip the eggs I can't as I always wait for my cichlids to let the baby's out of there mouth and then I catch the baby's.

I love mouth brooders! Very interesting to watch them hold. Poofy jaws :D I am used to paternal mouth brooders though, not maternal.
