New babies!!!!!!!!

My new Lifalilli Jewel cichlids have just spawneddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!! mega excited here.... but does any one know if there is much chance that they will survive in a community of mainly other cichlids? So far tehy are guarding their brood really well and there is about 150 littlelings!

Anyone got any advice?

BA, BSc, MA.... hopefully soon to be Phd.

There is a good change they will be eaten, when they start swimming around they will make tasty little snacks.

Whoa.... the parents are beautiful! I hope some of the fry make it to adulthood. Good luck.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Congratulations, papa!

I'm so happy for you - and your little Jewels! They're SO cute, and their parents are just stunning. . . one day I hope I'll be lucky enough to see Cichlid brood-care, just an amazing thing. . .


You'll have to keep us updated on how things go over there. Fingers crossed that a few make it to adulthood.
