I bought a 90gal tank today complete with a variety of near monster sized fish and a breeding pair of these cichlids. There are a few babies left though a lot seemed to have disappeared while moving.

sorry for the low quality pictures, I'm not too good at taking pix of fish yet. The lighting also isnt very good.

They're convict cichlids, photo number one is male, photo number 2 is female. Don't worry too much about losing the fry, some time over the next few weeks the female will colour up and soon after that you'll have lots more!

Thats what I was kind of thinking. They are more blue than I thought convicts were so thats why I was thinking twice.

The pics are hard to tell but thats the same fish in both pics. The female is much smaller and for some reason has been harassed non stop by the male since I've had the tank. Is that normal? They were all peaceful and protective of their fry when I saw the tank the first time. Now its like he wants to kill her.
