The funniest/cuttest thing.

So my african cichlid has had eggs in her mouth for at least a week or more now. And I've been keeping an eye on her.

One day while transfering some floating leave things from my guppy tank to my cichlid tank A FRY was caught up in the net and was soon chased around the tank. I thought it was eaten and really didn't care too much. The other guppies probably would of ate it anyways.

Now about 5 days later I was looking real close at my cichlids mouth to see if the eggs had changed into fish yet! :)

And guess who I found..

It was the guppy fry nestled away in her mouth. It didn't look comfy though :P

But it made me have a good laugh. And also let me know that she will probably be a good mother.

Just wanted to share that with some one.
Cheers,
Rudy



P.S. I was a member at another website but couldn't find it for the life of me.

Welcome to the forum. How funny that your guppy fry found the perfect place to hide, for now anyway. Any chance of a pic?

Well my cichlids have never sucessfully spawned before. It wasn't untill maybe 3 months ago that I even realized why my one female would be floating in the corner of the tank for about a week.

So I don't think she has ever had any real experince with her own live brood. But clearly she has the mothering instinct within her :P

I'll try to take some pictures later tonight. If I can't manage to get a picture of the inside of her mouth, at least you'll see my coolio fish.

Cheers,
Rudy

And Thanks for such a nice welcoming and responses everyone!

Pictures of my cichlid

I couldn't get a picture of the inside of her mouth. And Havn't really been able to catch another glimpse of the guppy.

Like I said before, the gupy didn't look to comfy

If I see him I will tell you. And I'll also report back if and when her babies are swimming around.

Cheers,
Rudy
