They are very orange and I dont see any black lines on them either, which yellow labs usually have from less than 5 weeks old.

Ah ok.

Am not 100% sure but picture 18 makes me think that she is a Pseudotropheus saulosi and not a yellow lab. It could also be she is not a true yellow lab (which many in the hobby are not).

Is there visible barring on her back?

Still though, they like the water conditions you have given them and have spawned so that is always a good sign things are going well in the tank.

Keep us posted as to how they are doing.

Nice pictures . Im still trying to figure out how to get the 4 fry out of my main tank. and seperate them. But i think i might just leave them they have some hide spots. But heres my question the female lab you have that had the fry was only 3inches? because i have actually noticed another of my Zebras are holding and shes barely 3inches. Should i be concerned for her holding full term?

She sometimes shows the bars but only when stressed I think only lions cove show the bars constant. She is srill yellow but just a very dark yellow. I think camera and screen settings make her look orange

She is less than two but not by much. The male chased her for a month before she gave in to him. She is very young and is why I choose to strip her young. At four weeks I feel she would have died. Only six of the orignal thirteen fry are still alive so I lost a few. However the remaining ones are very healthy and growing fast.
