Would it be doable to raise them up for a bit in the 10g so long as I do lots of water changes until they are big enough to hold their own? Thanks for any input. The 10g pH is 7.6.
I recently had my own batch of labs i took the mother out of my main tank and put her in a 10 gal
for about a week. Than i stripped her of the young but i found out its best to leave them with the mother till you know for sure they are free swimmers. I ended up having to rig up a make shift egg tumbler from a small net with a bubbler underneath until the little guys lost most of their egg sac.
A 10 gal
is perfect to raise them i had all mine in one no problem. Although im not sure ho
the cories will be they may eat the fry but id say you have a better chance at keeping them in the 10 gal
rather than your main tank. Its up to you if you want to keep them with the mother or not.
