How Often Will These Cichlids Breed?

    recently I’ve had a mysterious batch of cichlid fry pop up in my tank. Mom is a black convict and dad is a green Texas cichlid. How often will they breed now that they’ve done it once already?

    Adults raising fry will delay the next attempt, but removal of the young will likely result in the next spawn within 10-14 days.

    My Firemouths spawned twice, only a month apart. There was like at least 500 of the little buggers in there at that point.

    Uh oh. I have a couple of those in that tank too. I think they’re both male though luckily
