Default Katumbi female stripped with mixed result!!

I stripped my female Katumbi Point after only one week because she was constantly being picked on by the other females. I was afraid with all the stress she would spit before I could get the valuable fry she was holding. When I emptied her mouth she was holding 40 eggs. Unfortunaltey only 14 heads and tails. The rest were infertile egss. But, I guess 14 fry for a first try is not bad. I was shocked as to how many eggs she held. I thought Macros had smalll spawns although this was my biggest female at about 6.5 inches. Hope the fry continue to develop well. Right now they are doing fine a tumbler.

Great! I think macros have the largest broods. My macro rainbow females would hold 20-35 every spawn. Hopefully my katumbi will spawn soon.

It's might takes you a little longer than normal, but to be expected, you've done it again..

This time she has been holding for 23 days already

How long more can she hold may I ask? Thanks in advance for all of your advices!

The fry should be fully formed now, so you could strip them if you want to
