ok first how long will a female hold unfertilized eggs? a day or two right? well heres the backstory. i just had a female hold after not being around a male for 48 hours... i know she wasnt holding when i seperated her, i inspected her carefully kuz her fins were all ripped up. i watched her swim for like a hour last night alone, but within the last 3 hours she started holding... ill keep this updated

well 20 hours later, shes still holding, the male jumped out of his breeding net and into the tank with her, she didnt seem to bothered by him but i put him back in prison. still waiting to see if there fertilized or not.

Let us know what comes of it.
I bought a small but breeding size lab recently hoping it was female because I have 3 labs and they're all male(I think). The very next day after buying it, it looked like it was either holding or had a gravel in it's throat. It was only there for a day though. It's done this twice now but I'm thinking it's really a male too because so many people say that if they have black on their bottom fins they are and this one does. I wonder if there is a reason they would hold gravel like that? Sorry don't mean to be hijacking your thread lol. It just came to mind after Cichlid Power's reply and thinking maybe yours could be holding gravel too.
