I thought it was time because her pouch was fairly big. No im just going to keep them in the breeder tank for a while then ill add them to the main tank, sell most of them and keep 1 since it will be my first batch Ive ever had.

Hi Fish Friends,

None of my yellow labs will spit the kids out when the time comes. I have noticed that if I occasionally more all of the labs to a bucket or small tank, babies will be spit out - normally. Then I move my adults back to the breeding tank.

That undeveloped baby fry is still alive this morning and my lab is fiercely protecting it. I really dont know how it can be still alive if the egg is still attached. Im amazed. Is there a websiste somwhere that shows growth of fry cichlids?
