There are several different methods.
One is to insert an object into the females mouth (after netting her of course) and then allow the babies to simply swim out.
Usually you are stripping her in a fry tank or a fry keeper of some sort. Objects used by club members include: toothpicks, ballpoint pens,
pencils, paperclips, and a spoon.
Another method, if the fish is small enough, is to remove the bulb from a turkey baster, insert the fish into the baster, and then
put the bulb back on and pump the little fry out of her.
A third method involves opening her mouth with your thumb and swishing her backwards through the water.
Whatever method you use, make sure that you are gentle and respect the fish. You don't want to damage the fish for obvious reasons,
but also because she may not be able to breed again if you hurt the fish's jaw.
We'll have to get an article going with a step by step on this one. Having someone show you haow this is done or at least seeing some pics
will make it easier to understand.
