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.

Glad you're in a jolly mood after becoming a grandfather once in a while(before the sev ate the eggs). Never knew you'd use a heart-shaped smiley to express your joy and er...enthusiasm.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
