Prior to going on our camping trip, Bo had to prepare their food while we were gone for several days. He was worried about the mother Jack Dempsey being in the same tank as her Fry, it’s in that critical period where she has to be removed or otherwise ending up eating her own young. We were glad that she didn’t harm her Fry up to this point and Bo finally removed her to another aquarium today.
She is now in the same tank as the male Jack Dempsey, and seems to adjust well to her new home.
The Fry are doing well without the mother Jack Dempsey.
