Krib fry care?
So my krib fry are 2 days way from being 2 weeks old since I first found them swimming around.
I noticed in last last few days the female has been getting big and colourful again.
So should I take the fry away soon?
There are about 30 of them, and I think the only place I can up them for now is in my 10 gal RCS tank.
Anyone have experience in talking the fry away? and putting them into a new tank?
Let me know! thanks!90 gal planted community tank

You can just siphon them out using a tube or use a fine net. But with a net, once they get alerted they tend to hide. So you will have to catch them in batches.

The one pair of kribs that are the oldest (wc male/tr female) they just keep adding to the population in their tank, with them I wait until the fry are easy to scoop out with a net. This time they had a couple groups of fry growing out in different sizes, got a bunch moved but the time has come to take all the decor out and see exactly how many are really in that tank.
