Default Female Texas is Holding

Hello I am new to breeding petros. One of my female Texas is holding. It's been about 14 days now. How long is full term? Do you guys strip after a certain point, just let them hold to term and spit in the main tank, or move them to a smaller tank and let them hold to term and spit in there. Please let me know as I'd like to be successful.

Most strip @ 21 days. I leave mine alone and let them spit in the tank.

Do not take her out of the colony. Typically I do not strip unless she still holds above 30 days but even this, I like watching the babies come in-out of the mothers mouth.

If you are worried about the little guys getting eaten, you can separate the fry or place them in a tote inside the main tank. Congrats and keep up the good work.
