About a week and a half ago my Aulonocara's to my surprise bred. Part of the reason I was not expecting this was that she really wasn't that "fat" to begin with. Right now I have a situation where the female is not spitting and she is starting to look emaciated. I know that it is possible to strip the female and I think I am going to have to do this. Does anyone have any advice? Should I allow her to continue to hold (I am not sure what she is holding either because again she hasn't spit) or should I end this by stripping her?
