Yellow Labs

My female yellow lab has eggs in her mouth for about 3 weeks now and just moved her into my breeding tank do i need to do anything else? This is the first time she has had eggs. Thanks

She'll probably hold for another 3 weeks before releasing, some people 'strip' their females but i prefer to let nature run it's course. It might be worth having somewhere for the fry to hide when she releases as the female will have eaten very little, if any, food for the 6 week period & temptation in a smaller tank might be too much for her.
