BTW I've never left the male with them. Tell me how it goes. I hope you have plenty of live plants (or plastic) and hiding places, because I'd hate to see the male eat them all :(
With infusoria cultures-it is the cloud that is the microscopic organisms or infusoria and they feed off the single-cell algae
With some spawns, most really-I leave the male with the fry, I have some set-up that still have both the male and females along with multi spawn and fry of different ages and all is well.
The thing with leaving the male with the fry as long as you can-is one-the male teaches them how to eat and teaches them parental skills-the offspring from fry left long term with the father usually are better spawners and parents IME anyway.....
But very true-without the proper set-up the fry may be doomed...lots and lots of cover is needed and real good feeding of the male especially after the fry are free swimming for a few days. Every male is different IME......
