Hello, about a week ago I added a male pearl gourami to the tank of my female and for some reason did not consider they would breed. Now, she is gravid, and I don't have the accommodations to care for the fry. If I remove her from the tank, will she reabsorb the eggs? Would a local chain store (Petco, Petsmart) be likely to take the fry? I'm extremely interested in raising these fish but I just don't have the means to right now. Thanks

"Accidental." I doubt the fish see it that way. ;)

I actually had a pair of discus start breeding regularly, decades ago. Very exciting, but I did get worrying what I'd do with all the fry in a 55-gallon tank. I needn't have; as bicboihulk observed ... free fish food.
