my cichlid tank has been up for a about a year and a half now and i all of a sudden have crazy breeding going on. i have 3 baby fish i confirmed a week ago that are identical to my other mbunas and i have two baby fish just found now that are black/white that do not match any other fish in the tank. its crazy to me that they're willing to reproduce in there considering how aggressive they all are towards one another. i have 13 lake malawi cichlids in a 55gal tank. its REALLY neat watching these little fish duck and hide and fly around the tank in search of food. ive never had a cichlid that was a 1/4" in length lol. guess i need to consider another tank now. i wont be able to have that many fish in a 55gal, or i need to sell them.
