I hope someone can help me :-? I have a spawning pair of red jewel cichlids that have an entire tank (47 gal) to themselves as they spawn like crazy. Last Thursday the female laid more eggs then I have ever seen, she was fanning the eggs like crazy :eek: Then they moved the eggs like usual by Friday ..now forward to Monday my poor female has lost her color and the male is shooing her away :( She is eating today fed them brine shrimp with spirulina (sp?). Why did this happen ? Is she stressed ? Tired from caring for so many eggs ?
Please help me :D

Relationships with cichlids do sometimes break down. I usually give spawning pairs a couple week break from each other if things look fishy. I suggest you do the same. :) She is stressed for one reason or another. Giving her a break from him by removing HIM will help greatly.

Always remove the aggressor. :)
