Nice video Very Happy . I looked them up. They are cichlids from the rivers and swamps near lake Tanganyika, and also present in lake Kivu.

I guess your fish are proving that article right!

"It is rather remarkable how young these haplochromines will reach sexual maturity. I have had 3 cm long females hold a brood to term."

Congrats on the spawn.
