The parents will hover and fan to try to keep fungus off and then they will try to keep the wigglers in place but at some point, I move whatever amount I want to grow out. I siphon into a bowl and avoid the net idea. I prefer fresh hatched baby brine shrimp. If you are not ready, it may be too late to learn and get set but fear not, feed the good and they will soon be back with another group and then you should be ready.

Yes, they can do the same, starting somewhere in the second to 3rd week...
However, they are not designed for it, and they can actually injure the parents quite easily.
Best to take them away at about 2 weeks.
The moment they are all free swimming (not lying on bottom any more) you can start feeding baby brine shrimp.

Hi. I'm back.
