Zebra Obliquinden Fry...

My Zebra Obliquinden female released the fry yesterday...

How long can should I let her stay with the fry??? I usually let my Mbuna females stay with the fry for 2 days...

Just give the fry some hiding places - like a plastic plant or two, or some Java moss - and keep a watch on them. If the female starts chasing the fry take her out :tu:

I remove my female after a couple of days and feed her up ready for putting back in the main tank.

thanks Barry... She is not chasing them or anything so far, she is hiding behind a rock and they are freely swimming around the tank...

Looks as if I will have to follow the Mbuna routine just as Dave said...

At least you know the fry will be safe if you do that! :tu:

To be honest I think there's every chance that she would leave them alone. If you're not worried about saving all the fry you could experiment and leave her in there. If she DOES start trying to eat them you could get her out before too many fry disappear!
