I'm a pappa
Congrats to me!!!
My Pseudotropheus acei have spawned. I noticed about a week ago that the smaller of the two looked like it had a double chin. Figuring that they were spawning I was excited. 5 days later still not seeing any fry, I figured they either got eaten or the eggs were not fertilized.
Well after getting a red jewel and putting him in the tank on of my other cichlids went freakin' NUTS. I had to remove him, so out came a lot of rock. While moving the rock two little fry dashed out!!!
I captured them and took them to a friends house where he has a tank with two mollies, and rocks for them to hide in. Hopefully they will fare better in there than with the other monsters in my tank. I did get the beast out and put him in my friends other tank with larger cichlids thatn him. He turned dark real quick and headed for the rock coves. He is no longer the boss!!!!
