    Hmmm, gibba huh? Well, so far it's not too bad. I don't think it will outcompete the plants. My dwarf rams are doing the 'kissing' dominance displays right now. These gals need a guy in the mix!

    Within one week, the rams have laid eggs! I watched the female as she laid them on a rock in the tank! Very cool. The pair seems to have bonded quite well and are guarding them.

    Most of the babies will most likely not survive. They often don't get it right the first time according to the attached article which has pics of males and females.

    I was mistaken when I said the male and female were together for a week. I put the male in the tank just two days ago (Friday). As I recall, her ovipositor was sticking out before then.

    It's really cool watching them take turns watching over the eggs. The other fact that might kill off fry is they chose a spot near the filter intake. I had to pry an oto off the intake this morning. He swam in spirals for awhile but seems ok.

    It's hard to imagine a cichlid that's that small.

    Yeah, they're a laugh a minute! The rams are small but beuatiful coloring. They're beating the neons off the eggs like centurions--very fun to watch.
