Help too many babies!

Hi - we have a 215 gallon fresh water tank with many varieties of cichlids. The problem is the yellow labs and pearl mutts are having too many babies and over populating the tank! What can we introduce that will eat some babies to keep the population down? We also have red empress, thin bar sliver dollars, clown loaches, giraffe cat, several severums, etc.

Local fish store might be interested in buying your young stock or using them for trade credit for foods, etc. Welcome to the forum!

Try a Malawi eye biter. They are vicious towards small fish but leave the bigger fish alone as long as they are well fed. One of these would keep the new borns to a minimum.

Why are you keeping Africans with severums?
