Looks like it, she's not ready to spit though. She will look like she's gonna explode before they are ready to come out

I think you meant to post here, it doesn't matter. You would need to take the parents out if she spits anyways so the best thing to do in my experience is to have small tank ready with water like the big tank. When she looks ready strip the babies into the smaller tank. I can go into stripping if you need

Sounds good, I'd say they would be ready to come out in 2 weeks or so

Better early than late, if she spits in the tank they will most likely be eaten or you'll have to take everything out to get to them

Ok so i moved her to tank and now no eggs...will she eat them just because i moved her? Think of getting a screen to seperate tank in future....might be better idea than removing her

She did good in new tank but was by herself
