I have a 15 gallon Lamprologus multifasciatus tank with 12 adults. Right now there are about 20 fry kicking around as well.

I feed the fry Hikari First Bites every other day or so, but last night I noticed some maternal behaviour for the first time when feeding the adults their NLS 1mm pellets:
one of the mothers was hovering over her clutch of fry and spitting out bits of the chewed pellet for them to eat.

Do I have a genius multi or is this behaviour fairly typical?
