My two yellow labs are what apears to me breeding.
There circling around eachother and doing this mating dance thing.
I seen videos on youtube and there doing the same thing.
My question is when do they have there babys and all?
I have a seperate 10 gallon with a snail in it
Im gonna get a little breeder cage thing
When do i move the female into it?
Any help would be good!

You'll notice the buccal cavity (throat) of your female is swollen, if they're actually spawning. ~18 days after that, move the female into the 10gallon and strip her into the breeder box. Fatten her up for a couple days, move her back to the main tank, and release the fry into the 10g.

If the circles are fast, it could just be aggression. If the circles are slow it's courtship. If there are pauses to lay eggs and pick them up it's spawning.

Courtship can last for months.

The 10G is good, but you may need the breeder net at all.
