Red zebra cichlid babys

My red zebra cichlid had 15 baby's a month ago and only 4 survived. Now she is having more now it has been 1 week and a half since I notice her pregnant. Do you guys/girls have any help of keeping them alive?

Best way to keep them alive is to separate her or strip her in 2 more weeks and put the babies in a fry saver. My zebra female usually has between 40-50 fry and once we even pulled around 70 from her mouth.

Very exciting. When you say "having" them what exactly are you describing? The whole process of cichlid procreation is pretty cool.

Yes it is! She had 32 of them. I fed them baby brine shrimp and they seem to be eating
