Actually, all of my cichlids love live food (I feed them live shrimp once a month) so I'm sure if I reintroduced the small guys I rescued a couple of weeks ago, they would last about 1 minute. I will leave the fry that will eventually be discharged from the mouthbrooder in the main tank and let nature take it's course.
BTW - my oscar has eaten 2 inch cichlids that I brought home from my fish store. $60 meal for him.
Thank you everyone for the wealth of information.
