Mt female was acting off and I just uncovered about 10 wigglers. The mother is ferociously guarding anything that comes near by either tail-slapping or biting them, almost like a convict cichlid. Now she’s looking a little thin so what should I do? Do I feed her while she guards the fry or do I wait until they’re free swimming? Also, should i remove the males since they might eat the fry or do I leave them? She’s been vigorously chasing away anything(including myself) away from her fry so I think it might be safe.
