Day 3 update. I already feed them with banana worms and looks like they are eating well. Dad is doing a great job.

They looking good, but they don't look free swimming in the video. Don't overfeed too early buddy. Goodluck!

Also remove the male tomorrow to prevent any issues.

Thank you for the tip. I was thinking on the same thing. They are not swimming and they have big bellys. I will keep them with no food for at least 2 days or 3.

I am monitoring that male every 15 mins and is a great dad. (My keeper). Is so easy overfeed them since they are so tiny.

Now finally the fry are swimming free and still dad is doing a good job. I feed the male and eat very well. He also expanded the nest. I am monitoring and this male is one of the good ones taking care about the fry. My plan is wait until tonight to remove the male, unless i see any danger. Still i have about 30 fry that need some help from the male, but i will say 75% of them are swimming without help. Here is the video.

They are so darn cute! I can't wait for mine to hatch. Hopefully I can keep them alive. I'll be keeping an eye on yours xD I want to compare how they will turn out.

I decide remove the male from the tank as preventive. Now looks like 90% of them are swimming fine and only 10% on the aquarium bottom. They are alive but they swim up and down and some of them in sides. May be will wont make it if they drawn but i do not want to risk the others 90% since i will wont be at home all day. I can estimate around 150 fry swimming around. Maybe more, maybe less.

Also i turned off the aquarium light to prevent algae from growing. The light purpose is only to help the male taking care of the fry, but since is not there anymore does not worth it.

As tip: i am using my cellphone camera zoom to identify if there is still live banana worms around the aquarium to avoid over feed them. Once there are no live worms i will wait 1 day before feed them lightly.
