Herotilapia Multispinosa. (Rainbow Cichlids).
This happening on a weekly basis, Probably one of the easiest and simple Cichlids to breed. All the way from Nicaragua, They will breed anywhere. So I thought I would take a few shots before they all get eaten again. Shame I know, but I don't have the space to keep the little blighters anyway.
First this is the spot they have chose this time, Just a simple piece of fake white wood made from plastic.
Next this is the female cleaning the eggs.
Keeping the eggs clean by fanning the area, also keeping a fresh flow going over them to stop them getting stale and infected.
This is the the proud parents guarding the eggs.
