Stripping

I have stripped my cichlid of her fry now and they all look alright. They're not eating the flakes or pellets that we put in the container, so do I have to buy baby brine shrimp? Click image for larger version

ID:	239492 they are pretty much free swimming.

My female on the other hand is breathing extremely heavy. Is this normal? She seems to be freaking out. She's only about 3 inches, and we got 14 fry out of her.

Just give her some time. She'll starting eating again within a day.

And if your fry has a sack or bubble like underneath they won't eat. In a couple of days it shrinks away.

They have actually been little pigs! I bought frozen baby brine shrimp, and they ate it like crazy. They've also eaten pellets and peas. they're doing pretty great.
