Sneaky catfish

A small but sneaky catfish called multipunctatus, Tan color with dark spots, stays very close to mouth brooding chiclids at breeding time. When the female and male chiclid are laying and fertilizing their eggs, the female catfish sneaks in lays her eggs, the male cat fertilizes them and the female chiclid picks them all up and mouthbroods them to hatching time, then guess, which ones hatch first and guess what is for lunch LOL Cruel but effective.
