You did something I could never do breed cichlids. The parents always made a meal of their kids.
Believe it or not the male here I got for free at a local petco as some lady was moving and just dropped it off there... oh wait I have 3 already but no spawning.
After I got him home it only took a week to pair off with one of mine and they almost killed the other one that was left alone. I took that one to a LFS and made sure it got to a good home. Every 10 to 20 days they spawn and I have had only 2 spawns that have lived. this is the third if everything goes well.
Put some melaflex in the tank and the females eye is looking 100% better now.
They are still doing some fighting now and then but looking like this spawn may make it.
I had bichardis that would spawn like clockwork every 33 days. Great fun to watch
I've alway wanted to get two of those electric blue jack dempseys.

These are green Severums but I am really not wanting to try my hand at shipping live stock. It would break my heart if they did not make it.
Updated photo- fry eatting this morning
