Cichlids wont stop breeding.
I never anticipated this as a problem, but my fish are breeding to much, to the point now where I cant let the mouth brooding go its full term of 3-5 weeks. Now I have to strip the eggs out as soon as I see they are holding. I did one more today and now in my breeder tank I have a bunch of eggs with tails moving around, hilarious. I'll get some pics up tomorrow.
Any suggestions to make smaller breeding sections in my 10 gallon tank? I have it sectioned off into 2 halves. I read that you can use pop bottles and put slits in it with a knife but I'm hoping there is a better way. It might come down to buying another 10 gallon setup, they are on sale right now at petsmart for 28$ and they come with the hood, bulbs and filter just so everyone knows.
