So I had to rehome one of the female rams the stress of being the smallest was getting to be too much, but it seems the male is intent on having multiple females. Any time the other 2 start to butt heads he swims up and pushes them to opposite ends of the tank.

A little update, I unknowingly screwed up pretty bad. There was another spawn a few days ago and I thought the eggs had been eaten, well I was very WRONG. The female had moved her wigglers to a small divot in a piece of wood. Well I did a very thorough water change today and while cleaning the moss sucked up all but 2 of the wigglers which I just now noticed. It didn't dawn on me that something may have been up when the female was unrelenting in her attack on the hose

I'm sorry for the loss but I think I feel worse for the ram!

The good thing is they'll lay more in a few weeks

The female spawned again already! There's quite a few eggs from what I can see. The odd thing is, the male is defending the eggs while the female patrols the whole of the territory, it's definitely the opposite of what I am used to seeing with dwarf cichlids.

Hmm sounds like a role reversal.

Mine take turns, the last spawn had the male on the eggs for almost 2 days straight. His colors were getting very dark, he looked way stressed.

So far so good all eggs are fertile, I can see little eyeballs.
