Dangit! I was going to say that! (At least the Hemichromis part...) I got distracted with other things last night. Now I won't look so smart! :lol:

I see you are not useing a divider. Im glad to see your making out good with this setup. When you posted the last video after putting them in your tank I knew something was going to happen. Im glad it turned out the way it did.

Keep a close eye on them. If the eggs go bad and don't hatch, there may be a negative reaction from the male and you will need to seperate. I lost a nice female Hericthys Sp. White labridens to this.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I understand what your saying. Sorry to hear about the frempongi by the way.

Just keep an eye on them, because these fish are in the "hyper-aggressive" class of cichlids. If you lose your spawn, move the female for her own good.

Have the eggs hatched yet???
