I bought a Lees 3 way today put her in it and not 1/2 hour later there were 15 fry in the bottom and still counting! Unfortunately a few of them look deformed. Pictures to come. BTW, how do I know when shes done cause she really doesn't like it in that chamber.

EDIT: ok, her gravid spot is gone and she is no longer squared off so if shes holding on to any then consider them live food. The fry are getting active already and swimming up above the grate so I'm taking her out now.

EDIT2: Pictures! Not very good but well you know how it goes. looks like 4 of them slipped into the main tank (maybe gave birth to them after I took her out). If I see a point where I can catch them I will otherwise... survival of the fittest.

Congrats! Depending how much cover and what else is in your tank they might/might not survive. The move hiding places the better.

Congrats on the fry. The 4 that escaped may be fine, only time will tell.
