Holding?

Is my lab holding?
Also I moved her into her own tank while shes holding.
Do I put the male in with her?

Thanks =]

Well I put him in the tank with her, until somebody chimes in with more experience. He isn't bothering her, I think he's mad because I took him from his Blessed rock lol.

I heard that sometimes the male will hold for a minute so she can eat. I'm probably wrong.

Okay cool. I'll take him out tomorrow. I'm going to rearrange the big tank tomorrow and put him back in. He was gettting pretty aggressive towards the other cichlids in his "breeding" hole he dug in the sand haha.

+1 take out the male. on very few occasions does the male actually guard her, its more waiting for her to finish so he can make more lol. congrats, i hope u get lots of pretty fry that look like her! x

Cool man...You can wait to seperate her for a while...Like 2 weeks. Then put a small tank inside your big tank, that has really small holes in it. Or buy a breeder net. Let her spit in the little tank and remove her. Just make sure you drill the holes very small because the fry are tiny. I also drop in an airstone to keep lots of 02 in the fry tank. But the water is the same as in my main.

Mine is just an acrylic cube...No top, the top extends above the water line so the fry have no chance of getting out...Also keeps the other fish from getting in.
