One of my electra females is holding! EDIT: 2 of my electra females are holding :D

I'd like to take her out of the 130 Gallon and plunk her in a 10 to ensure that none of the fry are eaten.

I have a 10 gallon full of pseudotropheus aurora fry right now, they've been out of their mother's mouth for less than a week. Can I put Ma Electra in with them, or will that cause trouble?

Good to know.

That's what I'll do. I had her in her own 10, but now she's not the only one with a mouthful.

What's the best way to strip the eggs?
