My spawn is 6weeks

My spawn was 6 weeks old yesterday, is it time to give them their own space already? I see them chasing each other all over the place, I don't want them to cause each other any damage, but I thought I could leave them together a while longer. Could use any advise.
Thanks,

I also have a pair I'm trying to spawn, and she is dropping eggs when he gets near her, but not under the nest or in an embrace so the eggs are not fertilized. Is this because she may be a young female? Not sure what to do other than to just let them go and see what happens. Is this normal? My other pair did not do this at all. Still very new at breeding and don't see much on this issue. Thanks,

I can't really help you, but I thought I would congratulate you on your 6 week old fry :)

I think if she is dropping eggs when he nears her it may be they arent a good match?!

Alot of females drop eggs before the act of spawning. over excitement could cause it.
If it's her first time breeding it could just be inexperience. If she's still got eggs to drop, let them try to breed. Once she's out of eggs, or there are issues such as bad fighting, remove her.

Congrats at getting to 6weeks. :3 You can start jarring aggressive ones if it's an issue AND you have a way to keep the jars heated. Do you have any pictures? I'd love to see their sizes.

Baby pics

Not sure how to edit the title to show new pics but here goes with some pics of my 6 wk old babies. I also have a new spawn today with the same male as these babies.

Let me know what you think, I have 17 fry in the 6wk old spawn.

The Dad is the HM from tailand in my avitar, the Mom was a dark HM (also from tailand) but she is my Mom's and I don't have her here. I'll look to see if I have some pics of her somewhere.
