Question on breading minnow pike?
My Belonesox pike are my first livebreaders, so this is all new to me. One of my females had looked close to busting for a few days. I was hoping to be around when she had her babies, that way I could put them in a breeders net for safe keeping. Unfortunately she let go of the babies sometime last night or early morning. All the fish were stir crazy this morning. Peacock ells looked like they had a nice meal! My question is whether she will still release her young if i move her into my 10 gal hospital next time she looks nice and fat? She is about 6 or 7 inches long, so maybe a small tank would cause to much stress? I Have 4 occupied aquarium already, so no more room for a larger breeding tank.

It's possibly that moving her could cause her enough stress that she would absorb the eggs instead of giving birth, or could prolong the pregnancy. However, if you're really looking to raise the fry, I doubt you'll be able to do it in a tank full of predatory eels and livebearers, so moving her is probably your best option.
