Great video, Robby - very informative, and you make the process look easy. I also like how you used a white bucket so it was very easy to see the babies swimming out, and it was very easy to see exactly how you held her and gently opened her mouth.

Nice job! Very Happy

ThumbsUp Thanks Robby for the how to video. Yes, you do make it look very easy. I enjoyed seeing another way on how its done. I see now that is what I should have done to my Rusty, she was holding her fry forever. I think the next time i see a holding female I will try your method and see how it goes. Once again Robby, Thank You!!

no problem! just make sure you know how long she's been holding Smile, if its been less than 15 or 16 days i wouldn't advise doing it unless you have an egg tumbler on standby

Nice video dude, much clearer then mine was lol. I've got 21 females holding right now and only 9 free egg tumblers so it looks like by the time I go to strip some of these females I'll have free swimming fry come out too!! Not a bad problem to have though affraid
