I had to remove my ahli. When I first got him he was not colored like an Ahli so I thought he was a peacock, but he soon colored up and just got too nippy. I also pulled out what looked like a yellow lab with no black and a slightly different shade of yellow. When I did that I had remove almost all of the rock in my tank, I did not see any babies. I then re-setup the rockwork. Since I have had the tank setup as peacocks there have probably been at least 5 times when one female or another was holding, but today I finally saw babies. They are in the pile of lace rock at the right end of the tank as I guessed they would be. So far I have only seen two. We will have to wait and see how many actually grow up in there. I was afraid I was going to have to net holding moms and force out the babies to raise them on my own in a separate tank.
