    I got my cichlid 3 weeks ago. It was given to me already pregnant but at the time I didn't know it was pregnant. I put it in a separate tank... I bought another 10 gallon tank, and put it there. What do I do now?

    You just wait for her to spit them out. This is called holding and it's what mouth brooding cichlids do for their eggs and fry. LeoDiaz he knows more about mbuna than I do.

    Yes also move her to seperate tank so the fry can survive
