13 in all. Some were eaten but my husband rushed home to separate her. She was separated by a mesh liner but the gaps on the side allowed a few fry to ease out and yes ....swallowed by greedy cichlids!

Very nice! I have had a handful of mbuna holding and it so hard to catch and separate I haven't tried. Never seen fry yet. Plus I don't know what to do if I catch her!

I remember when my jacks eggs hatched. I videoed them I was so excited! Then I moved everything else out of the tank so the parents could parent. And then I move the parents after a month and let the babies have the tank. Jack fry literally look like baby ants!!!! But it was 200-300 of them!!! About 70 lived to see a few months and today about 25 live I have given them to family I didn't have room. jacks get big! The babies are about 5-6" now parents are about 8" a and growing!

Congrats on your new babies again!
