Congrats on the new batch coming soon.

Depending on what size the original batch are now, you might have to keep an eye on them with the younger fry. Having two batches of fry can sometimes make the older ones, a little inquisitive and go after the babies.
Older adults will generally leave them alone provided they get enough food at feeding time.

Let us know how it goes with them.

The first batch is in the main tank with the adults and are over an inch in length. I am thinking of moving the female out into another tank. I may move the male with her to allow another to take over as the dominate male. The female is still under three inches so I may again strip the young from her around day twenty. I still have six from the first batch and they are doing well.

Bit of a late reply, bad bad idea of moving the male with her. If the male goes into breeding mode again while the female is holding, it will stress her to the point she might lose the eggs or it could kill her.

I would leave the male in the main tank, having another male take over is potentially asking for a lot of trouble, once he establishes as the tank boss, then he will chase the other male.

To be brutally honest, I would keep a group of only 1 male to several female and not multiple males unless you have the females to go with them.

I moved only the female. Problem is all my yellows are male except her. I am hoping she produces more females.

Well there is a new dominate one in my tank. Loki took over that place as loki is the largest fish. Not sure but think Loki is female.

Hey gang, dont mean to change the topic, reading about the breeding of the yellow labs is very interesting. Can you take a look at my post and give me some insight, advice and tips? First time owning any cichlids, I bought 3 Yellow labs from PetCo. and will add 2-3 more in a week if these seem to be thriving.

Link is here with some questions, and seeking advice. Thanks for taking a look!
