Can Pink Convicts and Yellow Labs breed together?
I have a yellow lab carrying eggs. the only possible male is a pink convict or a texas. i dont think the texas could be the father because they grow to be 10 - 12" and the labs only grow to 3". the texas and the pink are about the same size.
By "carrying eggs" do you mean in her mouth? If she is and hasnt been around any other fish in the last couple weeks, the eggs are surely infertile. I think the chances of one of your american cichlids breeding with a yellow lab cichlid is about the same as one of them breeding with a yellow lab retriever.

The need to breed can be strong in some fish.
It may be that they sometimes carry eggs around looking for a male, I dont know enough about them to say for sure.
