I just bought a trio - 1 male , 2 female of green swords - I have never bred swords before , they are in a tank on their own approx 25" x 15" x 12" - just wondering if anyone has any advice - Are the females cannibalistic ? or can I leave any fry with mum ? I was planning on letting the females give birth and letting the fry escape into java moss - thanks .

u should really seperate the fry so i would put the female into a tank by herself when she looks ready to drop.for some reason my females don't give birth until i move them,so sometimes i end up with big fry.

jazzer is right for some swords. but i flock breed mine with loads of java moss and wool spawning mops. if you have the room, let them drop in the main tank then move the fry after a few hours. this way you will not stress the female or the fry to much. we all have our own ways so you decide the best method for you
