Cichlids are attentive parents!

Our Cichlids are starting a family! They have about 75 wee little baby "fry" they are constantly protecting. They have moved them around the aquarium several times! The mother scoops the babies into her mouth to move them while the father chases away any threats. They are quite good parents! This is the father standing guard. Do you see the mother inside the hole of the rock? Cichlids are most diverse in Africa and South America.
