OK, here is a silly question.

I currently house yellow labs in the 30G tank (only yellow labs). There is little spot for babies to hide in the tank (even though I have caves).

My question is this:
1. If the holding female releases the fry in this tank, will the other yellow labs see them as food or will they leave the fry alone?
2. Can I mix older fry with younger fry?

I currently have a 10G with 2 holding females in them, but I am sure there will be more females holding in the future, so I was wondering if I can put the "future holding moms" in the same tank as the older fry, or if I should keep the different aged fry separate?

I've bred Kenyi before and I learned the hard way that I shouldn't mix the older fry with the younger ones.

Please share your experiences and advice.

Thanks

I didn't have good results in mixing yellow lab fry.

I had a holding female killed all other yellow lab fry right after she released her own fry.

I had older yellow lab fry killed/ate smaller broods.

I also had yellow lab fry born and grew up to one inch size in a community tank then got eaten.

HTH.

Just as I thought...thanks for the information :)

I had the same experience with breeding Kenyi
