    Smile Stripping female eartheater

    0 Not allowed!
    I took 2 females out my tank to strip them of their fry (14 days about for both) and took some pics for you guys/gals. Each female had about 30 - 40, and they are free swimming, but staying near the bottom in a big cluster. These are put into my 20 gallon fry tank with about 20 eartheaters that are about 3 months old (half inch) and my baby black calvus' (half inch). Hope you like 'em... pics one and two are different females. The last two pics are the 3 month old fry.

    Cool pictures!! Fry are so cute.

    Out of curiosity - Why did you hold it? Is that okay to do?

    I have to hold her in the net while I open her mouth to get the babies, then I carry her right back to the big tank. They don't seem to mind too much.

    The biggest task is taking almost all the rocks/pots/wood out of the tank to catch them! Then having to set it all back up after. But it's worth it. Good time for a small water change.

    The females are just fine and are eating right away again! The fry are picking at crushed flakes. Here's my females (all three of them give me batches of fry)..
    The male is already back chasing his ladies...

    Thats a fantastic series of pics Crispy. I know a lot of people who use the net method. It helps keep the fish wet and it is safer, less stressful on the fish and give a good grip so you don't injure the fish.

    That's great! I often considered stripping my Yellow Lab, but I always "chickened out" make it look easy!
