The Firemouth Cichlids… June 16, 2006

Posted by 30minutemeandering in Aquatics.

…are now getting in on he egg laying act. This afternoon they have laid about 100 eggs and were still going when i switched the lights off. they are far more agressive than the T-bars and have the poor Severum stuck to one side of the tank, however i'm not worried as seve is big enough not to worry about the bullying.

I do think the firemouths spawning is a major achievement when you consider over the last month the tank they are in has been plagued by algae. 

As i mentioned the T-bars i shall inform you that their eggs are now tiny fry and things seem to be progressing very well.
