Nice, the first spawn usually dont survive. But they will lay every 2-3 weeks if given the opportunity

I think she done ate them, they weren't fertilized; they should be red. Hopefully they'll be red next time and I'll put in a divider.

Thanks thebuddha,
First run was unfertilized and she ate them. My understanding is that they will probably go at it again in a couple of weeks. Once I see red eggs I'll put in a divider.

Thanks mistuhmarc,
The plant filled tank does look better and having tank lights was a big plus.

You shouldn't need to put in a divider, apistos, like any cichlid take very good care of there young. The female protects the immediate area spawn site, while the male protects the perimeter. Unless you plan on hand raising them I would leave the divider out,

But the tank looks good

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!
