any one know any tricks to get my cichlids to breed I have male and female of most of them once I get paid I plan on getting more females any one have an idea on the best set up to do that??
Not sure...mine bred in 78 and a ph of 7.5does cold water affect cichlids. like it does gold fish and kio??? with breeding I believe after winter time gold fish and kio breed right???
Hopefully the eggs will hatch...I have a pair of electric blue haps too.I see just trying to figure these fish out its not that easy. today I bought 2 new fish one was holding (that's why I bought her) and she spit most of her eggs out now they are in my new egg tumbler I made a few hours ago I tryed taking a pic but they were to big to put on here and I don't know how to resize them... but any way they are about 22.99 each that wasn't cheap!!! also they are ahlI cichlids vary beautiful.
yea I lost the eggs the tumbler was to rough on them I'm trying to work the kinks out... I hope they mate again thought soon!! its killing me.
Mine bred about 3 weeks after every brood was spat out. I had a male & 2 females who were both holding at the same time all the time.yea I lost the eggs the tumbler was to rough on them I'm trying to work the kinks out... I hope they mate again thought soon!! its killing me.
I did end up putting a bubbler on the end of the tube helped a lot and I installed a gang valve now I'm just waiting on more eggs. also on my fish to breed again I tryed feeding them some protein to see if that helps
