I would remove them as soon as they become free swimming. You should have close to a week. Leave a light on at night so the parents can guard them

You can use a syphon or a turkey baster . Careful with the net breeder boxes. The bigger fish can still kill the fry through the net.

If you can get them out now you will need a tumbler. If you get them as they are wigglers you can remove them. One of the best joys of breeding is watching the parents herd the fry around.
