All male tank???
ya I dont think so... lol
My 80g was thought to be an all male tank but I think some where along the line a lady snuck in....
I'm guessing these guys are maybe a couple weeks old. I found them while doing a deep clean the other day among the plants and in a couple of the small caves. What really gets me is that I'm in this tank pretty much daily and I never noticed any kind of breeding or holding going on. Granted I have some nice private rooms in my tank but still... There are 7 in total and honestly I'm amazed that they survived considering the other dozen cichlids in the tank too.
So because I was totally clueless about this I have no clue who the parents are or even what kind of cichlid these are. I'm thinking bumble bees... Those and a couple of OBs are the only type I have multiples of the same species. All the other are singles of their species. So thats my guess.
Either way a very cool find!!!Angel breeder wanna-be

What all do you have in the tank species wise? They look like a yellow lab/red zebra cross to me.Originally Posted by i_am_511

Was the aquarium intentionally structured an all-male tank? If so, how were the 'males' selected?
If you are able to post photo's of your adult cichlids perhaps we can identify the female(s), there may be more than one.

Congrats on the fry! If they're in a Cichlid tank, I'm surprized there are any left being as how Cichlid tanks are typically over-stocked.
The other day I was watching one of my fish laying eggs. It was amazing how fast the other fish would scoop up the eggs! The female had to be REALLY quick about turning and sucking the eggs up into her mouth before the other fish ate them! It's amazing that she was able to get ANY of those egges into her mouth!
I have about 15 labs in with my blue with black striped fish. I have been wanting to add more labs to my cichlid tank. Your labs, however, seem to be colored up quite nicely! Mine look to be a bit older than yours, but they're not quite as yellow.
Anyway, congrats on your babies. Hope they fare well!Yup, I got fish!
