Well I picked up 2 Red Jewel cichlids (Hemichromis bimaculatus) from slave4him saturday evening. When I got home from work today I found them guarding one corner of the tank. I looked in the substrate and there is a clutch of eggs. 3 days in the house and they seem quite happy. Will get some pics up soon.

Not the greatest pictures. Cell phone quality of course.

I am assuming this is the female. (I'll get the glass clean where they are and get a better picture later. They are in the hardest corner for a pic of course.)


Eggs.

They look so much better in your tank. And lots of babies!

Well an update on these. It seems they are both females as I ended up with 2 batches of eggs back to back.
