    No biggie.

    But basically if you have not planned for the spawn there is really no intervention you can do to save the fry. You can practice with the first spawn but it becomes quite complicated until you get the hang of it. You would need foods like rotifer or some of the newer foods they sell. The egg mass would have to be removed from the tank or the remove the fry on the night of the hatch. ...... It goes on and on and on.

    It can definitely be done and is done frequently but it takes a good deal of research and planing.
