Thanks Willow, I have two pieces of coral to help raise the ph a little bit but it has not changed the ph at all but the fish are happy so I am not going to mess with it. The rest of the rocks are just rocks that I got out of mine and my parents yard so I do not know what kind they are but I tested them with vinager to make sure they were safe to use in my tanks. LOL I have one of the labs holding a mouth full of eggs so I am hopeing I will have fry in about 2 weeks. ; )

It would be much easier if she would not hide in the sword plant leaves. LOL

Congrats on the holding lab

I would consider removing the yellow lab who is holding to a breeder tank / box

The P. cyaneorhabdos will try and get the fry, do not be too alarmed either if she doesnt hold them to term and swallows the eggs. It can take a few times for them to get it right.

They will usually hold for around 28 days, you can remove her and strip her of the babies after about 18-20 days if you wanted.

If you do not intend on getting a breeder tank or box then provide lots and lots of hiding spots.

Thanks Tazman! I am actual going to pick up a divider today when I go into town and put it into a 30 gallon that I have fancy guppys and platys in and then I am going to move her over there and if she has they fry keep her with them for a couple of weeks until she can get back into shape after not eating for several weeks. I thought about stripping her but for this time I am going to let her do it the natural way then maybe later on with the next batch try stripping.
