As soon as you see them wandering away during the day and minding their own business (as opposed to the first week, where they stay very close to the parents), you can move them out. I once had 70 of these moved into my community tank... it was kribville !

Thanks, I think I'll give it a try. I have a breeder box on the side of the tank. They're small enough for it now.

Haha, Oh boy! I'm going to move them. There's one brave one that always heads out away from the group,lol, I thought he was going to get eaten by an R.espei but I interceded. It'll be best, this is the longest I've had a group, I want them to live and grow!
