It happened in my tank as well. Male Midas with true female Red Terror (not mayan). I just let them be in the tank on purpose and they all got eaten by the pike cichlid.

anything is possible. I've had midas spawn with texas... Just keep the fry... Or at the very least make very sure who gets them knows exactly what they are.

There's just no way to stop hybrids in the trade... I just stress if you do let them go make very sure they know what they're getting

Sure there is! Theres two ways either just keep a species only tank or make sure every cichlid you have in the same tank are the same sex!

how? just make sure you have all males, aggression may be hard to avoid, but it is definitely possible to do.

It's possible for you or I to do. But there's just as many aquarists out there who keep nothing but hybrids. Don't you keep flowerhorns?

Lets get something straight, I have hybrids here. The debate is not the ethics of keeping them.

The point I'm trying to make is it's naive to think that hybrids will just go away. They're here, they fetch a lot of money and people are greedy. So it'll never stop.

i meant there is a way to avoid hybrids in your aquarium, not to stop the entire thing.

ya, i keep flowerhorns, and i will be dedicating my only tank over 10 gallons to it (90), hes my favorite fish :D
