New babies!!!!!!!!
 
My new Lifalilli Jewel cichlids have just spawneddddddd!!!!!!!!!!!! mega excited here.... but does any one know if there is much chance that they will survive in a community of mainly other cichlids? So far tehy are guarding their brood really well and there is about 150 littlelings!

Anyone got any advice?

There is a good change they will be eaten, when they start swimming around they will make tasty little snacks.

Whoa.... the parents are beautiful! I hope some of the fry make it to adulthood. Good luck.

Thanks Romad... its amazing what a good well thought out diet can do... it took loads of research but it was worthwhile!

Congratulations, papa! http://www.escforum.net/img/Smileys/...ys/biggrin.gif

I'm so happy for you - and your little Jewels! They're SO cute, and their parents are just stunning. . . one day I hope I'll be lucky enough to see Cichlid brood-care, just an amazing thing. . .

You'll have to keep us updated on how things go over there. Fingers crossed that a few make it to adulthood.
