    I ordered some africans into aquariums west about 8 months ago or so, 4 of them were Acei and went on to give me 3 batches of fry. The latest batch was over 70 from a single female!
    I also have 1m/3f 1.5" electric yellows in there, the purple/yellow goes great together.

    Thats awesome 70 from one female is a huge number, I already have 3 full grown electric yellow labs and Im going to stick with just the acei for now, until I get my 90 up and running

    so what do you feed couple week old fry, and how long does it take for them to reach the 1" mark? I have a breeding net they can be kept in till big enough to fend for themselves Im just curious

    hikari first bites for the first week or two then crushed up NLS cichlid pellets.
    getting them from fry to 1" id say roughly 3 months, and the first couple weeks you need to be extremely careful not to overfeed as it can be fatal for them.
    I only keep them separated until about half an inch though, my setup has lots of little holes and caves for them and my electric yellows thus far have not been nipping at them, before tho when i still had the mother and father they would go for them, strangely enough.
    within the next 6 months as this batch starts to mature and start breeding (i want to breed the electric yellows too) I want to get a 10 gallon tank for growing out the fry.

    thats probably smart tbh, a couple people have come by now and i just have about 5 left of the 1 inch ones which im going to keep for the next round of breeding and there are still ~20 3/4 inch ones in there. and ~60 fry.

    occasionally in the mornings one of the fry will be dead and i suck him up with a pipette and put him in the main tank and it promptly disapears. this third batch tho have been MUCH more resilient than the first two, much fewer dead ones, I heard from my biology prof at college (she used to breed cichlids) that as the cichlids get more experienced breeding they tend to have not only more fry but also healthier fry and that certainly seems to be the case.
