breeding?

Postby Jase » Sun May 11, 2008 2:55 am

I have three african cichlids (not sure what species, theres a few that look a lot alike)(the ones with spots on their anal fin) but I have a pale blue/white one that cleaned out a stump decoration thing, and is having little siezure things. then it tries to get a the darker gray/blue one to follow it in there. I don't see any eggs, but it won't let anything near the stump except the other cichlid. they are both about 4 inches.

well he's digging a little, but mostly just removed every single piece of gravel from this enclosed stump thing...
