I was just looking at one of my cichlid fish and saw that it was swimming close to this rock with its belly facing the rock. After some minutes I looked back at the rock and saw that there where bunch of eggs!

Now here is the problem. I have no idea what I should do with them. Should I put the rock and the cichlid pair into a tank or just leave it in the original tank with my other fishes?

Please help

I currently have 1 rainbow shark, 8 cory catfish and 15 neon tetras with the cichlid pair

How big is the tank? The parents are likely to aggressively keep the other fish away from the eggs/fry, and if the tank is not very large some of the other fish may be killed. I do not know whether it would be smarter to move the cichlids or to move everyone else...someone more cichlid savy than I can probably help.

I always just let my cichlids and eggs in the same tank. I had lots of shake in there and hiding spaces. I’d get babies. Probably more if I removed them all.
