Their is about 40 fry, first spawn of this female. I am keeping them inside this breeding tank and will later move them into 60cmm x 30cm x 25cm.
The water you have outside is fine to add slowly, but it doesnt have to be too slow. Just try to filter out as much bacteria and unwanted chemicals (if any) as possible.
Its really your own decision to keep or get rid of the whole drip method. I would probably get rid of it and. Just do he water changes carefully.
40 is a pretty good number for a new breeder female.
