My female Brichardi jumped out last night, didn't notice until it was too late. There are roughly 50 free swimming fry now and the adult male, if i add new Female's will the fry get eaten, Mammy and Daddy have not gone near them, it is a species tank. Any ideas what to do apart from put a lid on it....

Thanks john

I wouldn't add a new female at the moment, the male may get protective of the the fry and kill the female.

I wouldn't have any problem adding a female straight away.........these guys I found are incredible at looking out for eachother..........I would be amazed if any fry went missing after adding her to be honest.

Separately i found a lot of deformities in Brichardi fry recently due i'd say to over breeding with different generations of brother and sister breeding so watch out for that ok.

All the best

Given they form harems then they will effectively look out for each other however id personally leave a female off for a while longer until the fry are a little bigger and established..just my thoughts.

Lads Thanks for replies fry are doing well at the minute. Going to leave them for a bit and then try a Female.
