Firemouth Cichlid update

25 Apr

The Firemouth eggs are all gone from the piece of wood where they were laid. I see no sign of babies except by watching the adult behavior. The female is now guarding a rock cave. She goes in and hovers, waving her body, clearly aerating her little ones. At least that is my opinion, I can’t see any more than that.

I have been leaving a dim light on near this tank through the night and will continue to do so. I also feed the other fish in the tank frequently and AWAY from the Firemouths. The Firemouths swim right over and eat quickly, then head back to work.
