Start taking some pics as they get bigger.. I would love to see them!! :)
Hi cichlidlover, I didn't get any good pics from the first spawn (only 3 left now), but I got some with an iphone of the second batch.

yes, it is! It's hard to even capture the swarm in the pics. I hope it stays that way.
my guestimate: 150

Their nice happy family with two parents and ~150 babies has been rocked by divorce. The wife/mother kicked the husband out of the house and he has moved into another crib. He even took about 10 babies with him, or he is abducting them. His home is not easily defendable, I think this is bound to end badly

Damn hate when that happens, maybe once the babies grow up they'll reignite their romance.

Or, the male will eat them up so he can return to procreating like last time. I'm seriously considering dividing or a second tamk
