You can do either or. If you want the fry, then move the mother to the QT
. If not, then just leave her in. If this is her first batch then you probably won't have many that survive. I'd wait about 2 weeks after you first notice that she's holding to move her. But if she starts getting harassed by the other fish, then I'd definately move her ASAP
because it will only stress her out.
