That was about 5 weeks I think? Now they are full grown and breeding! I will try to take some pics. They are fast fish...

Do you harvest the eggs or just let them do their thing in the tank?

depends on which tank it is. i have them in two tanks right now, the father of the one photoed is in a 29 which i try to harvest eggs when i have space to grow them out, or I will pull out free swimmers. but in that tank I also have my stripped panchax and the 3 hybrid panchax gardneri, so i pull free swimmers before they get eaten. but i think i got three eggs last night that i put into my breeder box which already on juvie in it.

the one photoed is in his own tank, with a female (i haven't seen in ages) and i let them free swim in that tank. as of last night i have 3 in that tank.

I'm not really concerned with breeding them, but any fry i see i want to give a fair chance to survive.
