Angry Noooooooo!

So I was gone for a couple days business meeting since Sunday morning when the the eggs hatched and I told my brother to take care of them a make sure everything was fine. Then I just came back and see "the male is in his jar!" I said WTH!!! is the male in his jar? called my brother up and told why he took out the male? he said they were already free swimming but not all of it but half of it...... SMH

Can someone tell me is the fry's still fine without the male when half of it is free swimming and the rest still on the bottom?

I generally don't worry for the first week since the male is in there with them.

Yeah thats fine. I'm doing an artificial hatch where you remove the male just after the spawn is done. OFL is helping me along with it. So far so good for me.
