Good luck with the fry. My Convicts are crazy protective of the fry. They are used to me intruding to do particial water changes but attack relentlessly.
My tank is a 55 gallon and besides the jewels, I have three silver dollars in the tank. The tank is decorated
with lots of plants and caves, cichlid stones, and other hiding places. Unfortunately, when I woke up the other day, all of the fry were gone, I looked everywhere and cannot find them so Im guessing the parents ate them:( Not sure why they would do that since they was taking turns protecting them from the other fish. I was gonna feed the fry Hikari Tropical First Bites. Maybe next time I should take them out?
