How long can you leave Mom with fry

Postby forkman » Sat Oct 20, 2018 12:12 pm

I have a small colony of yellow labs in a species only tank. They are still young, but will soon be breeding age. My plan is to remove any holding females and place them in their own environment when it is close to the time for them to spit. I have a couple different cycled tanks and some breeder boxes I can use. My question is how long can mom stay with her babies before she sees them as a tasty snack?

24 hours IME. I would not plan on using breeder boxes.
