Yes, I did the multi spawn experiment last year by leaving the female and male together with the fry, I would have to look at my logs to recall how many spawn I had, but I think it was 5 or 6 but not a 100% sure. The male was great and so was the female for that matter she would feed along side the older fry and not eat them. I did have some older fry that ate some new born fry, so I did start to remove the larger ones to grow-out.
Overall the experiment was a success and a lot of fun.
