Not my cichlids, but my Chinese Algae Eaters. I think they had babies, but they're still pretty small, i started out buying 4 small ones, then 2 of those got eaten (bye bye convict, well into another tank). So then i went out found some slightly bigger (3-4 inches) ones, and bought 2 of them, so that makes me having 4. K, so then about a week later my other (smaller) Convict decided to eat another small one, which would leave me with 3. The convict was being aggresive so I went to pull him out as well, and had to remove everything but sand and water from the tank, so there was no where to hide. The Chinese Algae eaters all gathered with each other on the glass in the far back corner which made it very easy to count, and there were 7! What the heck? I have the 2 big ones and 5 (1-1.5 inch) small ones. This all took place in about 2 weeks and i really have no idea what happened, any ideas?
