Florent wrote:If you look to Geophagus megasema pictures in CRC catalog you can see that G. megasema, which is described without head marking, may have black marking on operculum depending of mood. Maybe it's the same with G. brokopondo, and description you give of your fish agrees with this hypothesis
Very interesting, please have a look on this tread : viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12977

what a shame
stripping fry is firstly very stressfull for the parents, but secondly, the fry is denied parental care they need badly in order to be able to hold frey themselves later
If somebody would offer me stripped fish, I might take the water, but not the fish. Stripped fry is worse than worthless
As you wrote, the fish reproduce regularly and if this time the fry don't make it, they will make it next time. No worries, in a while you have more fry than ytou would want - because you keep them in good conditions
