I just looked in my Kribensis tank and have apprx 30 fry!! :) Question is, Should I remove the male or female from the tank or keep them in there? First time with Krib fry.

I would post pics, But they are so small! The parents keep them under the cave roof. I only saw them because I was checking something in the tank and saw something swimming around then noticed more and more of them.

This is the best pic I could get. All those little spots in front of her are the fry.

oh i see them! that's great! i'm pretty sure after the fry are a couple weeks old you have to take them out of the tank because the parents will mate again and they'll start getting aggressive toward the older babies.

I'm wondering how I do a water change with fry that small...Or do you not do one while they are still in the tank?
