That's o.k Angel, just joking around with you.
I also respect the opinion of Mastifman, this is a forum for opinions and information after all.
Keep the informative posts coming mate.

I just want to make sure that you know that I agree you about a few things and that this maybe where the mix up came from on this thread.

1. I do understand that stripping the eggs is an unnatural process... I agree. I didn't mean to imply that I thought that it was a natural process.

2. I'm a bit confused by this translation of yours.... It seems that you may be saying that Stripping the female proves is only something people in the business of selling trophs do?


3. I want to express to you that rasing and breeding tropheus is a Hobby for and It will never be a business in my mind. I couldn't enjoy it more, unless I had all of the species that I want to have and that just isn't possible at the moment. I sell the tropheus fry as a way to put money back into my hobby. I don't pay bills with the money and don't plan on it. It saves me from having to spend out of pocket money on equipment and care products. Although at the moment I'm saving to build myself a Renewable energy system to power the second floor of our house that houses 3 breeding show tanks and 8 fry tanks. This will help with enabling even more Tanks in the future.

I enjoy watching my fish and seeing them grow and mature as well a spawn and reproduce. it's a Passion of mine and always will be. The day that I start looking at them as a Business is the day that I sell everything off and be done. Which will not happen for a long, looooong time...

So i just wanted to share my thoughts about this with you so you know where I stand.

thanks for reading...

There is another way to the two listed.
Thats using brooding tanks.
Thats what I do.

I know its not natural to separate her from the group but guess its the closest I can get to her finding a quiet spot in the wild.
Reintoduction after a few weeks feeding up in the middle of the night.
For sure not as fast or as big broods as stripping but I am in no hurry and have little interest in suplying the hobby.

This is what I used to do with Mbunas and Haps. but people ensured me that ti wasn't feesible with Trophs becasue of agreesion. But that is great that it works for you. I might have to try it...

Depends on what I'm trying to accomplish. If I'm selling fry, stripping is the way to go. If I'm not selling fry, let her spit and the strong will survive...

I'm trying to sell fry and build the colony but I haven't been stripping like I should to accomplish this. I recently had five females holding and had two to six fry spit by each female. Small clutches. I'm gonna start stripping earlier.
