    Oh my! Absolutely beautiful Av!! They sure have colored up nicely .
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    The one on the right in the second looks like a very cheeky male. Tis the necessary evil concerning cichlids... Need at least 5-6 to make one or two pairs. So hard to distinguish males and females with cichlids except through directly inspecting the nads. Video is awesome as well. It might be wise to remove any remaining conspecifics from the tank. Too many rivals would mean stressed out parents. Especially if first time breeders, they will cull their own eggs before allowing other rivals to predate them.

    yeah, im going to "thin the herd" once they all have a chance to pair up.... they seem to just now be maturing to that point.
    Im not sure yet, but I think i have 3 males and 4 females.... with 2 pairs bonded already, ummm I think LOL

    Right now it's way too much work with so many in such a small tank.... Im doing partial water changes every 2-3 days to keep Nitrate levels below 10ppm
