The holding lab is probably at the surface because she is being harassed too much. I buy breeder nets at wal-mart (like $3-4 each) and use them to hold the fem until she spits or I strip her. It's worked well for me.

As for the fry, a grow out tank would be better, but if you don't/can't have one, then you'll have to take your chances with either putting them in with the older fry and letting things go or building a rock pile in your tank and letting her spit in there. They work pretty well and give your fry a chance to survive. Irecently found some yellow labs in my fry pile that had to be atleast 3 weeks old judging by their size. Either way, good luck.

If you'd like to see how I'm raising my fry, here's a link to my fry post:
