There were about 20 or so. I haven't submitted a BAP in like 6 years... But one is on the way.

Once they have heads and tails you are fine. Don't feed them until the egg sack goes away. Make sure the water stays a little clean which if you are not feeding them should not be a problem.

I don't have egg tumblers, so I use the same thing you do except I add another air stone to the bottom of that fry saver. I put the line through the hole in the top of the container. The sole purpose of the extra air stone is to move the water inside the container better. it keeps the fry from staying in a clump....

Hello!

I've stripped a few females in the past but have always managed to do it when the fry were free swimming. I just recently stripped an Aulonocara sp. "Stuartgranti Maleri" and the fry still had their egg sacks - but had tails and could move around if they wanted to. I put the fry into one of those hang on the glass containers that cycle the tank water via the suction created by an air hose.

My question is, should the fry at this stage be put in an egg tumbler or is this type of container OK? They seems to all huddle together and not move too much so I'm not sure if they'll make it.

Any tricks/hints/thoughts would be great.

Thanks!

Marty
