Default 3 females holding - new fry shots added.

I have a 240 gallon with 14 large and semi large Fronts.
All are females and one male. I have 3 smaller females holding right now.
One fry got away. I have the tank empty right now of all the rocks.
I caught the fry and have him in a fry net. Should I catch the females and
put them in my 10 gallon grow tank? Or just let nature take it coarse?
They are all slightly over fed in case you might think they would get eaten.

Thanks!

I stripped them. This was my first time to strip the Fronts.
These were from the youngest females and I have around 35 fry.
They are now in the 10 gallon tank.

Held some frozen brine shrimp in the cluster of fry and they were
eating it out of my hand. 8)

I take it from your picture that they are Kigoma. Congratulations! Can't wait till I'm posting a story like yours.

Yes they are all Kigoma's.

Need to sell a few I think.

3 week old Kigoma fry
Stripped 12/05/04



Kigoma fry
12/23/04


They are growing pretty fast. 8)

Check out the fat one in the middle. Bet that one will be the alpha male!
He is the one who got out early and lived alone under a rock for a week
with all the big fronts. But it could very well be a fat female who just got
a good head start.
