I hope this is the right section to post this in, it was either here or the general aquarium discussion. Was just wanting to know if anyone out there has had the experience of breeding these guys before? I currently have a 10 cm female, and a slightly smaller male (seems to be male). My female has been laying eggs and mouth brooding them for the past few months, though the male doesn't seem mature enough to want to fertilize the eggs (only got him a few weeks ago though) Does anyone know at what size the males should be ready to breed? When the females have the eggs, should i strip her fry or allow her to keep them. eg, will she swallow the fry? Cause i've noticed that when i have fed her and she has eggs in her mouth, she seems to try and filter the fish food into her mouth. Which worries me that she may give up and swallow the fry to eat. The average mouthful? Food i should be feeding the fry? I have tried google, though google never seems to answer your questions directly. I guessed i would get better answers from here. Ive added a few photos of the female holding her eggs.
