EBJDxBGJD Spawning

My breeding pair spawned on November 9th, I removed the eggs and hatched them in a seperate tank as I always do.Then spawned again to my surprise on November 30th, once again same procedure. Now less than 2 weeks later, I woke up this morning to yet another set of eggs! Normally this would be a fantastic problem, but i'm now running out of places / room for fry! Has anyone ever heard of Dempsey 's spawning so frequently? And any suggestions?

The simple solution would be to not remove the eggs if you don't have room to keep them. Most probably won't make it, so you won't have to house them.

Do you feed bbs to fry? Just started reading into this. Feel like i've been left in the dark , out of the loop for so long. Apparently its necessary for EBJD fry's survival?

I'm not any good at differentiating when they are really small, but eventually there is a major color difference. I don't use BBS for my spawns every time, but I do sometimes. I use microworms though, I do think live foods are essential since fry are constantly foraging. Live foods don't foul up as quickly as prepared foods do, and the movement really gets the fry feeding.

Wow...fed my little guys they're first meal of bbs last night and what a difference. I've never seen fry eat so much! Tons of fat little bellies!

Just removed the 15 or so fry that had survived from the last hatch of eggs that I was forced to leave in the tank due to lack of space. Did a 1/4 water change or less and 2 hours later, .... NEW EGGS! I Love my fish! Recently made room by finally selling bgjd's to lfs!
