not necessary. a stunted or smaller size female can still lay many eggs as a large fish.

There is a farm in CCK which I just went last week..saw a really stunted spotted female laying eggs...the male is normal size but the female is so small that it is just about 2 to 2.5 inches...but it laid more than 100 over eggs.

Fries free swimming at 2-3 days depends on your water temperature

You can change water but use age water if possible

You can start feeding them BBS when they are 3-4 days after free swim

Fries too small to take fbs, buy those bbs eggs to hatch yourself

No need to take parent away, the fries can eat the slime on the parents.

Hope this helps and good luck
