    I have have a trio of Cynotilapia afra cobue. I have stripped the females. One time I got about 6 fry that snuck out out of the fry basket and were eaten. The most recent time I got 5 eggs, that I am trying to tumble. I may not have gotten them all, but it still seems it would be 10-15 fry max.

    The fish are pretty small and the eggs seem pretty big. What are the typical spawn sizes for Cynotilapia afra?

    what size thank you have them in?
    They sounds small, they will produce more and more as they get bigger in size.
    why strip them ?
    Isolate the female in a tank and wait for her to release them, its slow but effective.
    use I use this in the bottom of the tank, once she release you can return her back to the tank
