    im not sure which cichlid thread to post this so ill put it here lol.
    i have been given about 15 auratus cross zebra cichlids, they are about 5-7cm long. in one in particular you can already tell its a male by the dark colouration, so i was curious to know if its possible to breed from these fish or as they are a cross bred fish they are probably infertile?
    any information or advice would be greatly appreciated,
    cheers arkie

    Most hybrids are usually infertile, but there are exceptions.

    I guess the only way to tell is to house them together and see what happens.

    All of the Lake Malawi cichlids are VERY closely related. Even different genera can cross and produce fertile offspring. Most likely they will be happy to make healthy little babies for you.
