Photo Caption: This tank was set up from scratch 7 months ago. The fish seem to like it as they started breeding two months afterwards. The only problem I have at present, is that the dominant male is running the other fish ragged during spawing time. I currenty have one female holding at present

COMMENTS

Hey about your comment on the dominant male, is that the Astatotilapia Latifascaita because i too have that species of fish and males are common to be highly aggressive agianst their females for spawning. When one of my females become pregnant i move them to a breeding tank i have set-up aside just for spawning. Just thought i should have mentioned its normal. seeya fish avatar
