That's a good idea Robby, stripping fry is a whole different deal then stripping eggs.

Just saw your video, KGT. The instructions were clear and the visual was very helpful. One thing I was wondering which you didn't say was do you merely hold the female over the tumbler or do you apply any pressure? From what I could see the whole process is very quick and UN-stressful for the fish. I liked the way you explained why you keep the fish and the eggs in the water the whole time.
Very Happy

Thanks Deb, I know it may sound cheesy but we care for these fish as if they are all our pets and we want to inflict as little stress on them as possible. Stripping the eggs and robbing them of there instinct to parent there young is bad enough but to hurt them in the process would be down right cruel. I'm not saying the way i do it is the only way to do it and not hurt the fish but I feel like it is the easiest for them.
To answer your question I use the rim of the gg tumbler to open her mouth, once her mouth is open she can't help but let them pour out. After most of them have fallen out you can actually feel her spit the rest out, its kinda cool geek

Great video! I don't keep African Cichlids but appreciate them and find them fascinating. I learned a lot from your video. In fact, I was unaware of the process. Thanks for posting!
I'm glad I found this group... Smile
