i just had a orange and yelllow couple have babies again, what i do is the minute the mom has eggs in her mouth i put her in a 10g 4 10 days. then i put her in a breeder box ($8 at lfs) THEN on day 14,if she hasnt spit out babies i strip them from her mouth into breeder box,put her back in 10g for about a week then back into 55g she goes. the babies stay in box 4 10 days then i release them into 10g til there big enuff for 55g or i sell them to a ma n pa lfs. NOW MINE ARE AFRICAN so im not sure if this applies to your fish but this is my 2nd batch,1st 1 didnt even know til i had 2 babies swimmin in 55g but this time i caught it n have 22 out of 23 alive n well. 1 was dead at birth , but if same applies 2 your fish they HAVE TO be stripped from ma around day 14 becuase she will either start starving to death or eat her babies ........hope this helps
