The Orange Chromide / Etroplus maculatus with eggs and fry

You might think that I'm a little obsessed with this fish based upon my multiple postings of it. Here is the "personality plus" little cichlid in action - a gem of a fish from India and Sri Lanka. I keep them in brackish water.

The fry are now free swimming and being guarded diligently by the parents. Here's a few of photos of the pair with their young.
