Paratheraps melanurus "Lago Peten" w/ FRY!


The young pair got it right the first time. Fry are all over the tank, and the parents are doing a great job guarding them. Im going to try to pull about half of them out this weekend and grow them out before delivering them over to Jeff @ Tangled Up in Cichlids. Fry in every photo, some blend in the with the sand.. sorry

Thanks guys. The parents are just over 1 year old. Ive had them since they were less than 1".
I guess this topic was missed because I posted a few photo sets of these fish during the same week. These being the best of the sets.
