New yellow lab fry

Hey guys. I just stripped my female yellow lab today. She had 8 babies! I'm pretty sure this is her first batch. Any advice on what I'm supposed to do to keep these guys alive?

Clean water, crushed flakes will work as food. Make sure to take away mom as she will eat them and they should grow up okay

Don't bother feeding then until the yolk sacks are all absorbed. Lots of water changes and plenty of feedings

if they still have the yolk sacs you need to keep them flowing or they will die. If they are free swimming then you need to feed them.
