Just hoping that it works out

the male held for 17 days and spat the fry on the 18th day

but i was ill informed and hadn't separated the female from the male
apparently the right way to go about is to separate the male from the female and any other after the tenth day if you want to save the fry and grow them out

so now crossing my fingers for the next try

although after he lost the first set he has become very skittish and lost his bright red colors
may be after time he would be alright

Really very bad. I was planning to demand atleast one pair of these from you..
