One of my yellow labs are about to lay eggs... the dominate male has her near a nest he made and has been attacking the plecos and been keeping everything away. her vent appears to have swollen quite large as to be ready to lay eggs.

Lost a yellow lab just now. I moved him to a QT tank as he was Breathing heavy and was hiding at the top of the tank gasping for air. His fins were all chewed up and the other cichlids were pecking at him. Water is as follows Ammonia is Zero. Nitrite is zero. PH is 8.0 and Nitrate is 40. He is one of my newer yellow labs but had alot of black to his scales. he remained in hiding most of the time i had him. All my other cichlids are doing fine.

Great news. the female that my dominate male has been trying to get her attention has now excepted him. they did there little dance and she started to help prepare the nest site.
thnking she will be laying her eggs tonight and by morning will be holding. The building of the nest has taken a fever pitch and the male has become very aggressive twards all other fish with the exception of the female and my synodontis catfish

They dont lay eggs, they are mouth brooders, a female will drop eggs and the male will quickly fertilize them and then the female will scoop them into her Bucchal cavity. It happens so fast you will unlikely see the eggs actually being deposited.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
