Conducted by an international team of researchers that included two biologists from Monash University, and published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, new research has shown that male cichlid fish have a propensity to desert their mates, leaving them to then look after the young as single parents.

This is fairly common in Cichlids. My first experiences were that male H. tomasopoensis and H. labridens will run at the first sign of danger leaving the females and youngins to fend for themselves.
