Congrats on the Fry's.
Couple of questions ?
Do you have an extra tank ?
Do you have a glass divider or can you procure one?
IF you have an extra tank...all your fishes will be relaxed, parenting is also very easy for the Jewels...without really having to bother about protecting Fry's
Keeps stress levels minimal.
Fry losses due to other fishes eating up zilch.
You will need a small sponge filter, set at a 30% bubbling rate , to avid excess water disturbances.
If not any particular , feed any regular cichlid pellets in a powdered form...twice a day.
Dont over feed...shud do good.
If you have a divider, same thing , but u will c the parents flaring when other fishes come near divider.
Stress levels will be seen.
Chances of Fry's slipping over divider are high.After some time, you will have to move them to a new tank as waste form food and fishes would increase..inadvertently affecting your aquarium as a whole
