Hey Ant

try stripping the fry from her if she has been holding for that long, if you are unsure of how have a look on you tube heap of vids to show you how.

heres just on

hope that helps

Hey guys there is an easier way to strip all you need to do is grab a small funnel, put the female face first into it, hold funnel over a bucket and pousr water into the funnel and the fry come puring out. I found this to be less stressfull than holding onto the female.
