thanks. Is it normal for the parents to keep relocating them?the other cichlids are expected to bunch up in a corner on the other side. They are very feisty parents!

These are the guys that I was going to rehome! Lol in the end I couldn't part with them
I think they lost a bunch of fry overnight- maybe to the filter near where they were spawned.

So I've figured out that during the day the parents move them around the tank to search for food. At night time they return to the same corner at the rear of the tank.
