I've got Fry!!!

My ob peacock spit her fry today first time for me just have a few questions. Should I leave the mamma in the tank with them or should I move her? Second I have read to feed them 3 times a day should I just ground some flakes up to dust or should I go by some specific food?Click image for larger version

At this point, you want to remove mom - otherwise in a few days she will start eating the fry. To feed the fry you can use a mixture of ground-up flakes and live food such as micro or banana worms, as they get bigger you can add things like fruitflys and frozen brine shrimp.
