how long will ha female hold in there mouth. it seems that she has a swollen mouth, and the male auratus has himself a bedding area there is a bigger female that pushes her around so she is not holding her nesting area i moved her to another tank so there is no predation of the frie. one of my ?,s is how long will the female hold in mouth. and i noticed her yesterday any opinoins and awnsers will help.

Patience....

There are TONS of posts on fry, holding length, stripping, etc on this forum.

If your going to strip, do it at 18 days. They will generally hold about 3 weeks.

Sometimes posting is real hard. I dunno if it's the server or what. I saw one post that had the same thing posted a BUNCH of times. I know they didn't do it on purpose, or don't think they did anyway. Good luck with your auratus. I have 3 of them and 2 of the 3 just started changing to the male coloration. The one male is picking on the other male something fierce. I hope he doesn't get hurt before I can get him to the LFS Monday.
