Not the best picture but dad keeps them all in the cave.
He pushes the food into the cave for them.

Should I remove the dad and the fry?

Not an expert on this . But from practical experience on b/n pleco's moving the dad a fry doesn't work well for me . I lose about half when I am forced to do that . That's why they now have there own tanks. But I am not an expert by any means . just my 2cents worth .

If they are in a tank with fish that will eat the fry then yes....otherwise leave them with dad

Thanks for the advice. I would think that the other fish would eat them but they are avoiding that area like the plague. Maybe daddy already set down some ground rules.
