I just discovered that two of my Bolivian Rams paired-off and have fry! The newly hatched are free swimmers and stay clustered all around mom and dad. This is the tiniest fry I've witnessed ever.

Tank water ranges are pH 6.3-6.5, with 2dGH and 0.5-1.0dKH. Water is tea colored due to tannins from several driftwoods.

I just feed over them (they are sheltering inside a hollow driftwood-like decor) with Hikari's First Bites.

I've been watching today their parental behavior. Dad seems to be something like a "gate keeper": keeping the babies inside (catching the one that ventures outside with his mouth and releasing it back at mom's side), letting everybody else they're not welcomed, actively chasing even the shadows around, and bringing fish food inside that he scoops while chomping to smaller pieces for the busy mom (and probably the offspring as well).
