My Red Jewels had babies and the fry are swimming around the parents. I have other cichlids in tank that the parents are chasing away. Its a 75 gal bow front tank. How long do I keep the fry in this tank before I remove them?
And what is the best way to remove them? I was thinking of using my syphon i use for water changes to suck up the fry.

Congrats on the fry! the syphon trick is the way I always do it. You can remove the fry now if you have another tank cycled and ready.
