sorry just saw this. yes at four weeks you can separate from the parents. At about that time the mother will usually stop caring for them and if she and papa start mating again she & he will see her older fry as competition.
I've left mine in and now have 2 broods going in two tanks and separating becomes harder...lol
Good luck, also how many do you think you have left?

Thanks for the input. About 20 or so I figure. Pretty hard to tell.
