Well, title says it all. I have an angel pair that has spawned again in my community tank and would like to transfer the fry and parents into another tank. I am aware that I can siphon them out, however should I move the fry first then the parents or vice versa?

Thank you!

Move the parents first, because if you go after the fry first, they could become defensive and eat the fry to keep them from *harm*.

If the fry are still attached to something, like a leaf, cut the leaf and move the whole thing to the other tank. I did this successfully about 2 weeks ago.
