    Default When should I put?

    My yellow lab had babies on monday the 17th. When should I put her back in the community tank with all the other fish?

    I usually only waited a few days (3-5) before I return them to the community. Now I don't even remove the moms, too many babies. :roll:
    Just being for awhile.

    Good luck Joyce. When you put her back in the tank it will be like she was never in there. So take all the usual precautions you would with any newcomer. A good time to do it is during a thorough tank cleaning. Rearrange everything that you can, a light feeding afterwards sometimes helps and I have heard that if you do all the above about an hour or so before lights out, that helps. LOL.
