Two weeks ago I purchased two black convicts and today I noticed the female acting oddly so I took a closer look. She had laid eggs on the back side of one of the rocks, they had hatched and she was moving them into a cave she had dug out under that rock!!!
I am new to Cichlids so what do I do now? I did run out and purchase some micro pellets for the fry. Also, I am a little worried that the rock she made a home under might fall on her and the fry.
Tank Info: 55 gal, 1/3 sand 2/3 gravel substrate, lots of rocks with caves and some artificial plants. Occupants: Two black Convicts and 1 Pleco. (I decided to switch from a community tank to an aggressive tank)
All suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
By the way...I love Cichlids!
