I can't get a photo of her, she hides behind the rocks but the pic below represents exactly what she looks like and none of the other yellow labs have that "sagging chin." Is she holding? I have 5 other babies hiding in rocks that I think are Rusties and I really don't want more babies growing up in this tank (I can't get the babies out.) Before I set up another small tank and isolate her I'd like to know for certain if she's holding. What do you all think?

And on that note: I have a new Penguin 350 HOB, what size extra tank should I put that on to house her?

I have had yellow labs. She certainly is holding. You could take her out after three weeks of holding, put her in a bucket and strip the babies out and put mom back into her tank and the babies in a small tank and raise them. Or - do nothing. She will spit the babies in the tank and most of them will get eaten. Either way is fine. I like to raise fry and see them grow and make a few bucks selling them but it is time consuming and not for everyone. Leaving the babies in the tank is not wrong. Big fish eat little fish in the lake.
Since i have no idea when she started holding, how do I know when it's ok to strip?
