Scenerio:
55 Gal. tank with Breeding Kribs (waiting for eggs to hatch) and Breeding Bythobates ( eggs just hatched)

There's a lot of stress going on in the tank, so what is the best course?

I've a 10 gal. tank set up and ready. Do I move the Kribs into it and take the lost (their eggs haven't hatched yet) OR

Is it okay to move the female Bythobate (she's approx. 2 1/2") and her fry into the 10 therefore eliminating stress on the parent etc. As a side note, she's not allowing the father near the babies also.

Which is the best course to take?
Amazingly, It's not just fish!!

Considering you have less of a market for the bythobates in your state, I'd move them and protect the krib eggs/fry. Worse case scenario, they will respawn very soon.

I thought that was the best thing to do but wasn't sure it was okay until I asked. Thanks!!
