11 baby cichlids that is!
I just noticed two nights ago that one of our cichilds was carrying something in her mouth. I did a little research and figured it was eggs.
I decided the next day to buy her a separate tank to reduce stress and to ensure that the babies were not eaten if she released them soon. I figured we had at least a week or two before she was ready to let them out of her mouth…..but I was SO wrong!
She released them tonight! We have 11 little tiny baby fishes! I’m attaching pictures but they didn’t turn out so great. You can see the darker ones easier but there are a bunch of light colored ones you can hardly make out due to the gravel being so light too.
Enjoy the pics and I’ll be sure to update again soon!
