bob -

stripping a mouthbrooder is like fushing a radiator.

I hold my mouthbrooders gently and take this bottle thing with a pointy hose thing on  it. i stick the hose thing in their mouth and squueze water from the bottle into the mouth and the fish squirt out.

i dont really know anything about a radiator i just thought you would like the car reference.

I have never stripped a fish before so I will let her hold.  I doubt she will and I am cool with that.  If she does,  then great for me.

The next time though,  I will probably have someone experienced in it,  come over and show me the ropes.

Congrats on the spawn...Are you going to let her hold?

Not checked for facts.

Plain ole Burundis.  23 of them in a 210 gallon tank.  The biggest "Big Daddy" is coming up on seven inches.  The rest are all between 3" and 5" with a couple about 5.5" to 6" and one straggler who is just under 3".

Eventually,  this colony will get brought down to about 10 or 12 fish depending on size, ratio and aggression.

Gonna kill me to break them up.  Of course........if a certain someone does set up that 210 he was talking about.........  ;)

WHOA MOMMA!!!!!!!!  Just saw something very cool.  I'm sitting and watching TV,  and see one of my fronts really staking out a territory.  And a big territory at that.  Struck me as odd because based on size I didn't think it's a male,  plus I know who my alpha male is.  Very easy to spot.  So I thought "how is this little guy getting away with this?"  Plus,  with 7' of tank why bother? Then I realize that as it's driving the fish out,  it's not nipping or even trying to nip the intruders....just bullying them.  So I go over for the close look and realize immediately what's gong on! One of my fronts are holding!  Her mouth is bulgy and she's definitely "chewing".  This is a first for me.  YEE-HAH BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
