Default Petro breeding question

In the past I kept Trophs always letting females hold and spit in the main tank with great success I'm trying my hands at Petro's soon and want advice on this. Will they allow the fry to survive if given spots or will they kill and eat them? I can't imagine chasing a holding female with tons of rock work to try and get her to spit for me ..... Thanks in advance !

They will eat the fry. That's not to say some won't survive if you give enough hiding spaces. But if you want to maximize the number of fry, you should definitely strip the eggs and tumble or at least allow the females to hold for a few weeks and then strip the wigglers.
