    I have around 20 to 24 fry in a small 10 gallon.

    It's official, I have a pair willing to breed. This is their second batch. I suspect she swallowed the fry the first time around. I placed her into a bucket of water and she spit the fry out right away. I have them eating baby brine shrimp, crushed flakes and crushed north fin cichlid pellets.

    They look bigger now then they did six days ago.

    They're beautiful fish. Once they start to breed they will continue too.

    I need a new picture of the male. His fins are pointy and he's fully colored up.

    Here is a short video of the fry.

    they are fresh water south African cichlids, I do alter the water with baking soda and cichlid lake salt. I am thinking of switching to crushed coral to buffer the water naturally.
