This technique could be repeated until the feminine has no eggs left. The male then chases her away. She could be removed. If there’s an alternative female available, often times, a male will then induce her to go under the nest besides and he’ll raise a bunch of fry from the eggs of both women folk, but you’re increasing the danger of problems by having two or more women in while breeding. The male guards the nest while the eggs hatch. He also guards the newly hatched babies until they are free swimming.
