I never suggest it. Because, if you removed her, yes you'll have a smaller spawn but what if you have less surviving fr? ;) Just keep them together, until they are done. I recommend this, because you can always cull the fry after, usually the deformed or weak ones, which by the time they are fully grown you will have less anyways.

Well here's the update, I took her out. I'm not sure if there are any fry yet, I can't see anything in the bubble nest. My question is now... how long do I wait for the fry to appear, or do I put her back in for another round? Thanks for all your help.
I actually got these two from PetSmart, my HM is so pretty!!!

Pretty!

And within 1-2 days they should hatch. Mine took 18 hours :) Once they are free swimming, some daddies will eat them. Best to remove him after they are darting around on their own, because he'll get tired chasing after them my Maine did that - it was SO cute!!! <3

If not, recondition both of them (2 weeks minimum) then try again.

I wouldnt suggest trying to get more eggs after you remove the female because she will get over-exhausted and die. Also this would be more work for the male. If you have a spawn right now and would like to breed them again and have all the required equipment, wait a week for recovery and for the pair to rest, then start reconditioning them for 1-2 weeks. 1 1/2 minimum. I usually never condition my pair for the whole two weeks. Some people are different.

It's best to give the parents some time off before starting another try at spawning. You know your fish best, you will know when they are ready and look healthy.
