GBRs moving babies around?
Hey AC, long time no see.
My new GBRs just had their first batch of fry. It's a HUGE batch, there are at least 200 fry swimming around in there. So cool.
The parents are doing a great job of keeping other fish away from the fry, but at first I thought they were eating the babies themselves. After watching this for a while, it seems like *most* of the "eaten" fry get spit back out. It almost appears as though they're grabbing the outermost fry and spitting them back into the middle of the bunch. I know rams aren't mouthbrooders, but this is too weird. Is that typical for these guys?
