My pair of Blue acaras have a love hate relationship. They only like each other for a few days before the spawn and as soon as the fry are free swimming the mother turns on the dad and is over protective.

I am sick of this and I am splitting them up. This is the 6th batch of fry and they have never gotten along to raise the family I even added a target fish and that helped a little but not enough.


SO
My question is Can I take the mother and the fry out together at the same time. Put them in another tank and will the mom still care for the fry or will she freak out and eat them?

I would take the fry out alone. They should be fine by themselves.

Yeah I know the fry don't need the mom, but I want the mom out of the tank too. I want to split up the pair.

Taking the fry out would be the best solution. Sometimes if you spit the pair up, The male will either harass the female like no tomorrow and end up killing her!!!!
