I don't know what to do! Should I get Them a room (put them in a separate tank)? It didn't look like the female was holding this a.m. so I don't know if they did it right or will do it again ? Can someone who has experience with this matter help me along? Very Happy

They'll do it again! I'd let her hold for a while and strip when she's got fry, but many people strip early and tumble the eggs to improve the odds.

Is it just the pair?.... are there any other fish in the tank?

Congratulations, good job!

If you can set up a good-sized tank just for them, then once she's holding you can remove the male and leave her in peace.

I would strip her of the eggs and place them in a tumbler.

To me it would seem like a lot less stress on all of the fish and you wouldn't have to set up another large tank for the parents.

You can find some great video on the website of CVAS Sponsor KGTROPICALS - check them out... And I'm sure John would have no problem answering specific questions.

I hope this works out with free swimming fry, Fronts are awesome!

Keep us posted on developments.

Nice! I would love to buy one of the fry off you when they are big enough. I have a 55g that the fry could grow out in before going to my new 125g Hap/Peacock tank. Post some pics if you get a chance or link videos. I just got back from KGTropials and my wallet was a little lighter but I added 7 fish to my tank so I got room for a Frontosa in there:)

They didn't go through with it now I'm obsessed with them doing it again but I don't know how often they will try..I m also curious as to what size they'll have a viable spawn... mines are about 6 inches now and pushing 2 yrs old ...

You might want to remove the tankmates if you are focused on breeding the fronts.
