hey all, I noticed this evening that my blue Kenyi (which i thought was a male but i now know is a female) Mouth was looking really strange almost distorted a little with what i would describe also as looking like a double chin, i decided to feed them straightaway as i read a holding female would not eat any food whilst holding and she didnt :dancing: when she opens her mouth a little i can see yellowish/brownish balls in there is that eggs? am sooo excited its the first time i have experienced this, thats assuming she is and she isnt in fact ill! how long would she hold for? is there anything i need to do? sorry to all you expert Cichlid keepers im new to all this and being this close to nature for me is just amazing x

Well i hate being the first one to comment cause I am no expert, far from it! It does seem like your fish is holding. Got any pics?

The males are yellow in case that helps to determine gender.
