It has been 20 odd years since I last kept cichlids, just getting back in to it over the last few months and last time I had a male only tank. Just had a few Salousi (m/f/f) that I got from a very large pet store (unusual for me to buy from them) so put them in a 15g quarantine tank.

Female has been washed out color wise and hasn't eaten for a week. I honestly can't tell if she is holding or not, she is very elusive and usually hiding. Video is best I could get. Water quality is excellent as so much filtration on that tank: 0 ammonia / 0 nitrates / 18 nitrates. The other male/female I had in with her was fine but have gone to main tank already, held back this female to try and establish whats up. Help appreciated!!

Should probably mention this is a pretty small fish, only about 7cm or just over 2.5 inches.

Another video:

Pretty hard to tell from that angle. Is the bottom of her mouth/throat bugling at all?

You're right, she was. Just stripped 20 fry from her. Not sure what they will be as she was obviously holding for a while in LFS. They were on display in species tank but who knows :-?
