Parent and fry separation

How long after the fry are feeding off of the parents do you seperate them?

Hi Pat :welcome:

It varies from breeder to breeder and like anything else there are no hard fast rules. IMO I would not like to see the fry left with the parents longer than two weeks so long as they all get along. If the parents become stressed then the fry need to be moved quickly so as not to cause harm or unnecessary stress with the parents.

Best Regards...................Tony
