heres a video of them while spawning, female has a huge mouthful of eggs this morning, male seems to be still trying to spawn, i cant separate them because they are bi-parental mouthbrooders and she should pass him the eggs in a bit over a week, do i need to worry about them eating the fry once the male spits them or can the fry grow out in the same tank as the parents like with multi's??


species is: Eretmodus cyanostictus Makobola Blue Throat

Congratulations on capturing the spawning activity. I'm not familiar with that fish so I'll wait for another's opinion.

If you want to keep the fry you'll have to either isolate the father or strip him after the female passes the eggs along. Once the fry leave the mouth they're fair game for the parents.

thats really strange you'd think after they had both spent time holding the fry in their mouth they wouldnt eat them
