I've been rather busy to notice but last night (after cleaning the tank) there were 3-4 baby Cichlids. Makes me wonder how many I sucked out... :whistle:
The two I have (mixed with Oscars & Jack Dempsies) are doing well keeping the large fish away from their little ones which is fun to watch. I'm sure they will get eaten soon but it was cool to see!

THIS THREAD IS WORTHLESS W/OUT PICS OR EVEN BETTER A VIDEO!!! ;) ;)

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

I don't know for sure on the name but its a Orange Cichlid... :unsure:
Not sure which one is male vs female but one of them it guarding them very well. The size of the adults is only 4" and have no issue bossing around my large oscars and dempsies. I was thinking of doing another tank to raise them up but I really don't need more fish. If they survive, I'll still keep them.
