hi folks i was just wondering on peoples opinions as to, when to remove fry from the parents, i've got a pair of green terrors with 4 week old fry and today i've come home to huge pile of eggs again, the parents dont seem to mind the fry fliting about, but i dont wnt to push my luck by leaving them too long.

all opinions welcome

The parents may go after them when the eggs hatch. I'd get a tank ready. Your current fry are probably big enough to go after any newly hatched fry.

The parents may get scared and eat the eggs if you start removing the fry, but you never know until you try. If they are small enough to siphon, that would probably be better than trying to net them.

green terrors spawn about every two weeks. i always have a 'fry' tank ready (15 gallon) and put the fry in when they are around 2 weeks old. if you wait until they spawn again, the gts will eat the eggs.. or go after the fry. take the fry out, and if they still eat the eggs, better luck next time.. =]
