So after stripping the female, she seemed to be still carrying. I thought it was just a matter of her getting used to not having anything in her mouth. Tonight I caught her again and did a strip again not really expecting anything. Well she spit out another fry and one unfertilized egg. I have bred mbunas and aulonocaras in the past and strip them but Trophs seem to have a wider cavity compared to those species.

Well, a pleasant surprise and will not make same mistake again (hopefully).

Nice congrats! A long time ago I was about to strip a female katoto. When I opened her mouth I saw I was a bit too soon but one egg fell out in the bucket. I put her back in the tank and when deciding what I'd do with the egg (I had no egg tumblers) I thought what the heck ill see if I can save it anyway!
I put it in a small aquarium net and balanced it over a sponge filters bubbles and amazingly it sprouted a wriggler and grew into a healthy fry!
Haha no one gets left behind

Wife wanted to help out so she used a magnet cleaner on the tank I was growing algae on for my next tropheus group. Decided to flip the cleaner and feed ilangi fry:
