I have a pair of Madagascar Cichlids that are in the process of spawning. They have dug a pit and it has some black eggs in it.
I have noticed though that the male appears to be very enthusiastic and keeps trying to spawn with the female. Iam ok with that, however he keep shovelling gravel from the spawning area and tips it in the pit on top of the eggs.
Should I look to remove the eggs or do you think they will sort this out themselves. The female is now starting to bit him when he goes shovelling, but he is pretty persistant.
What do you think??
