African Cichlid Pros HERE! Help!
I just discovered a clutch of eggs in my Blue-Gold African Cichlid's mouth who I originally thought was a male, but turns out I was wrong. I have one other blue-gold which I suspect is a female, two female blue-faced OB peacocks, and one male blue-faced OB peacock in a tank. I've noticed the female chasing off all the other fish so I'm confused as to who the father is. What behavior can I expect from the father? These cichlids are young and inexperienced and have never held before. Is it possible the eggs are unfertilized? If so, how do I distinguish that from fertilized eggs? Thanks in advance.
