    How to move a pair from a community tank?

    I have a planted tank community that has two pairs of Krib's one of the pairs is breeding. I want to remove the breading pair when I have my 20gal setup like the 55 is. So more of the babies survive. So far out of about 4 hatches only 4 have made it to openly swimming in the community. The parents are taking care of there newest hatching and are relentlessly keeping the other fish from the fry. So the question is how to remove the couple without getting the pair wrong? This is the tank

    I was thinking of getting a divider to separate the pair and pulling all the plants except the foreground to be able to net them out. Does anyone have a better idea on how to accomplish this task?

    Take close photos of them. Pick out features on them like certain patterns or spots. Net them out and compare them to the photos. This is how I kept track of my discus back in the day. Fish usually have something unique about their patterns.

    That's a great idea Kyle I will take reference pictures of both pairs so I can tell them apart.
