I started a species tank with some small yellow labs about six months ago. Full disclaimer,I've never breed fish before. There is a male about 2.5" and 3 more fish around 2" that I haven't been able to identify their sex yet. The fish always hide in the rockwork when I enter the room to feed them (room not used much). Apparently I haven't been paying close enough attention and there is a lone fry that started coming out a little from the rockwork at feeding time. He's probably already a bit under a centimeter. Now it's a week later and the fish I believe is the mother looks like she is already holding again (not hatched yet). Getting another tank isn't really an option for me in the next month. I didn't expect this to happen so soon with how small the female is which of course was a mistake on my part. What is my best option to save the next group of fry and give the mother a break to recover? I have a larger 10x5x6" net/ breeder cage and I have one of those hang on the side plastic hospital boxes with the air pump intake 6x4x3". If I should put the female in one of these, which one and when? I think she has only been holding about 3 days.
