and if you strip them to early verry low survival without the right gear

i leave my girls in and when i think thaire 10 days or so i move them

mine seem to take around 16 days

on striping tryed it the other day for a laughf to see how far along she was and yay lil swimers donot sqush her or force/block her gills she will die :cry:

hold gently in water gently spred her mouth 2-3 times

and then i kinda masage under her chin she spits out a few

and i let her have a swim for a minut or so then repeat proces

most of mine are verry hand/net friendly

well just a couple of hours ago, i tried doing that

and yeh the fish spat all the fry out after it was in the net and i had around 200 - 300 fry over my walls

i managed to save most of them though

im not having much luck :(

I have fronnies and strip at day 10. But yeah same thing as soon as she leave the water, she spits them every where...lost a couple batches. So I push her into a bucket, pull the bucket outa the fish tank and strip her in the bucket. Worked for me, dono if it helps.
