eggs?

I've had a simple 20 gal. tank for about a half year now. I'm not that experienced with aquarium life so I'm not quit sure. I've had a cichild and a tigerbarb the whole time. Can they mate, because just yesterday their was what looked to be 7 baby fish (fry?). today they are all gone though. Anyone know?


thnx

Welcome.

Tiger barbs and cichlids don't mate. They are different species. What species is your cichlid? It sounds like a Lake Malawi mouthbrooder to me.

I cant remember, all I can tell you is that its silver with a greyish blue dot on each side with two long wiskerlike feelers on the cranial ventral side. I didnt really think they mated but I couldnt really think of another explination.

What I found was a bunch of what seemed to be brown eggs. Then they "hatched" and what came out had two big eyes and the same wiskerlike feelers. The next day when I got up they were dead though.
