The parents will guard the fry till they're around .5" then their on their own, so that's usually when I would remove them. What are you intentions with the fry? They're really common and couldn't sell mine to anyone and ended up giving them away.

Welcome to AA as well.

Well my mom wants to start her 50 gallon so ima give them to her when they are ready. Thanks! If they survive because they never make it but these have lasted the longest so hopefully they will. Do you know how to tell the male from the female because I have 6 jewels and I can't tell.

Jewels are a tough one unfortunately, there are different theory's about color and fin shape but without venting them or watching the female lay eggs and the male fertilizing them.
