Hongi Question!
Some of y'all might remember my other topic asking for identification of my Cichlids (they were Hongis!) Well since then, my female has held and we now have 3 baby hongis (all are now between 1.5-3 CM long) and I believe I have 2 males and a female. They are living with my goldfish right now (I had no other tank to put them in) and was wondering about what size is it safe to put it back with the male and the 2 females (both of which are currently holding)? The largest is almost a full inch, the smallest is just over a centimeter. Should I wait until the smallest is over an inch?

How big are the adults? I would keep them separate until they are at least half the size of the adults. That might take a while. If you are serious about raising fry I would invest in a small fry tank even if it is just 10 gallons. Hongi like it much warmer than goldfish and if they are not kept in optimal condition they will grow even slower than usual.
