Peacock Goby Breeding help!!!!!!!!11

Hi looking for a bit of help with my freshwater peacock gobys
There are in a 125l fully planted

I have 2 females and one male (LFS advise on the numbers to keep)
They seem to have found a breeding space (under one of my pieces of bog-wood, which is cave like)

The two females seem to have been categorised into which one he wishes to breed with so behaviour seems to be normal there

He is doing the usual guard of his breeding area and letting the female(that he has chosen, the bigger of the two) in only on intervals to spawn, also at times he doesn't let her in. All of which i know is normal

I only know there is eggs there as i accidentally disturbed his breeding cave on a cleaning water change.

My advice needed id that if the breeding goes ahead OK how would i keep the fry alive as i know removal to a breeding tank is impossible

You're going to have to remove the parents. Only way.

If they are happy and breeding you could try setting up a smaller 10g, let them do their thing in there then put them back in the main tank. It worked for me.

Only bad things happen quickly.
A little allot is better than allot a little.
