Default Holding WC Female Red Bulu

My Bulu's have not been holding lately. The last 4 times the females have swallowed within a few days. However, I found My largest WC female with a huge mouthful of eggs yesterday. Here is a picture of her this morning:




I decided I am going to strip her around day 6 or 7. I made some home made egg tumblers and I must say they work really good. Here are some shots of the construction and the test. I will post picks of the eggs in the tumbler when I strip her (Hopefully she holds until then).









Ps
I am adding 3 more WC females. In the next week or so.

Day 3 and still holding. If I get past day five then I know the eggs are fertile.

I made some tumblers yesterday specifically for my Petro Red Bulu's. However, I watched as one of my trophs spit in the tank and the Petro's proceeded to eat fry. I decided to strip all my trophs since I had the tumblers made. I strip 30 wigglers and saved 8 fully developed fry. I put the wigglers in the tumbler and the fry in the nursery. However, I had to move the wigglers to the Moba tank since the petros were whacking the heck out of it. Anyway, here a a video of the wigglers in the tumbler. They will be joined on Wednesday with hopefully a lot of Petro Bulu eggs in another tumbler.

Stripped two red bulu females tonight. In one I got 33 fertilized eggs. They are in the tumbler. I partially stripped another because I could not tell the WC females apart and I did not know which was holding longer. 13 came out before I realized it was probably day one for her. 3 of the eggs popped and I am not sure if the other 10 are good. I put them in another tumbler. I put the female back in the tank and it looks like she still has eggs in her mouth. I hope the eggs in her mouth are not damaged. I will pull her on Friday and see if I can get any eggs.

The 33 eggs from the one female are fertile and it looks like the heads are starting to come out. I'll will update on the others Friday.

Lost half today to fungus. Stripped them to soon. The troph fry is doing great. None lost. I think I need to wait to strip the petros past about 10 days. That's what I did with the trophs. Much better survival rate.
