    QuestionJack Dempsey Fry - Help Needed

    Hello,

    I have had a 75-gallon tank with SA Cichlids for about 3 months now.

    We have two adult JDs
    2 juvenile JDs
    1 white devil
    2 Banded Cichlids
    1 MIA Bumble Bee Cat ( he is sneaky)
    1 Geophagous (he is our newest addition


    Over the past week our two adult JDs became a mated pair of Jack Dempseys and they have subsequently just had 500 or so fry.

    I have done some research and I know that for the sank of the health and stress of the group I should remove the fry and mated pair OR move the rest of the fish friends to another tank. Which thankfully we have another one!

    My Question:
    Should I separate the other fish and put them in a new tank?
    Should I try to catch as many babies as I can and mover the mates?

    Any advice would be appreciated! The second month I got them they all got ick (we survived that) but NOW its babies that are causing a lot of the stress.

    I would move the other fish...trying to move 500 babies doesn't sound like a good idea!
