Wiley has babies

Okay so, I happened to check on the tank this morning. If nothing was going on, I figured it was a bust. As I was removing some waste with the turkey baster, I saw something moving. Yep, little tails and all..I have babies in there!

Of course, I panicked. I had not found a sponge for the sponge filter and, Ebay was not coming until Friday so, I grabbed my airstone, took my fluval sponge off the intake in the cichlid tank, rinsed it good, put the airstone in and some filter fiber so there would be hardly any current. So far, it's working. I have moss balls and one plant in there as well.

I put a little egg yolk in this morning, adding it to water that already has infusia in it...they sucked it up big time. Now, I am a nervous wreck. Dad is attending and doing well with it..keeps taking them from the bottom and moving them up. All I could see were about 6 fry. I have saran wrap on top but, I dont want to move too much as, I am not sure if all are hatched.

Any help is appreciated!!! TY so much.

I am a proud grandma :)

That's great! You don't need to feed them until you remove dad. They don't need a filter either, but it does help. Good luck!

TY Matt! I was in panic. I can't tell how many yet but, there are a few. Now, to see if I have any problems, where this was the rosetail. I am just so excited that I got one breed. :)
