i have a 20 long with 13 flavus fry in it that i cant afford to lose any of, would it be okay if i put my holding yellow lab in with the flavus fry she is just about 2 inches ii was wondering if she would eat the fry once she spit?

yes, she will eat your flavus fry once she spits....why not just strip her and place the fry into the 20 long.

It depends. I had two yellow labs in my fry tank at once. One started eating fry but only after she'd been in there for a week after she spit; I was trying to fatten her back up. She was pretty ravenous, but I only lost 2 or 3 (of 20).

Once she spits, you should just remove her. But a day in there with fry would be OK. Fry know to run away. If you have java moss, you should put some in for the fry to hide in.
