help with cichlid fry
I accidentaly cross bred 2 cichlids. How you might ask. Let me explain, I had ordered a fish online, but I didn't get the fish I ordered, nor is it the fish he said he sent by mistake. I still don't know what kind of cichlid Doc is except that she is a mouthbrooder, is only about 3 inches, lived peacefully in my community tank till her babies were born, and she changes color from stripes to spots or solid.
She was in the tank with my new Electric Blue African Cichlid they got along fine for the first 2 days when to my surprise they mated.
If someone can help me identify Doc and or tell me what I can expect from the fry or suggestions on what I should do with them I do not have enough tank space for them when they grow up. Please help.
