Thanks for posting bro!
Okay, this is a rather interesting find I would say.
I was actually trying to release the fry into the main tank and was trying my luck if I can scoop them using my hand.
To my surprise, the fry instead gather at around my fingers and started pecking without fear. It's like as if they are trying to go inside their mum's buccal cavity. They also followed my fingers around.
It seems like "fingers" have been imprinted to them as mother. I tried the same thing on the later brood and the same thing happened.
Of course this is just a layman hypothesis, need to be confirmed scientifically.
Nevertheless it was a fun and surprising experience.
