I am a newbie in raising cichlids and got a pair of demaonis that were breeding regularly but unfortunatley, the male died about 4 months ago. However, the female is laying eggs like every three weeks. She would still hold the unfertilized eggs in her mouth for like 5-6 days and then drop them. I would like to get another male fish and myabe a few more females but there is only like one store in town that has them but I am on my own in terms of picking them out. Any suggestions on how to tell the males from the females? Also, will the female demosani breed with other cichlids in the tank? She hasn't in the months since the male demasoni died. Thanks.
