Was i wrong to do that. ?

I would say 4 max.. Should be fine w/3 (1 male, 2 female). Depending on what else you have in the tank already.

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

ok i got 2 more as i found them at a petsuppermarket for $0.99 each and the usual is $9.00. although one of the yellow labs appeared to be orangish and today he is more yellow but here are some pics of him when he was "orange". is this a yellow lab?





pardon the fake plants as the old tenents would rip up live ones.

Can you explain this process? And why it's done, as opposed to just letting the fish do its natural thing?

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios

im interested aswell as i have had Labs breed and a large litter survive without doing this.

P.S labs will also rip up plants as they grow, and i dont know if this was answered you asked how big they get

its 4 inches max in captivity, usually 8-10cm is the max growth.

Stripping

If they still have yoke sacks let the mother put them back in her mouth. It is best to let her spit them out, but you can strip as I have done many times. I did once and the babies still had the yoke sacks so I let her put them back in her mouth. 4 days later I stripped her and they were fine. She had 31. That was my Auratus. I have 2 yellow labs and she did have some babies once. Then the male died. If she is in a divider by herself and she isn't stressed, just let her do it herself. Plus she will be weak so you will need her by herself for a bit. She wont eat her own babies, or shouldn't. I have a 10 gallon that I put the babies in.

Good luck

I like cheap and DIY
