Default Yes, female moshi holding eggs

So i just picked up a pair of moshi mibilibililililili. anways, came home and the male was chasing all the tropheus. then saw the tube on the female and i know it was on like donky kong.

anyways... these are f0, but only got a pair. male is usually dull and drab until its feeding time. then he is nice and gold. the female was actually as colorful as he was.

thinking i will strip the female in 7 days

NICE! Congrats... I'm working on my 10 WC as well. They've spawned 3 times with no luck yet so hopefully you'll get lucky. My male is so darn worried about chasing off the rest of the tank. So I'm not sure if that's what the deal is or what...


Keep us posted.

thanks!

so i feed my trophs and petros exclusively 1mm nls pellets. i noticed the female moshi was very hesitant on eat with a mouth full of eggs. but i did however notice she was able to take a few pellets. i never seen this with trophs before, do petros normally still eat a little while holding?

I don't see how they'd be any different than other African cichlids. I'm sure that they will get what they can.

i kept alot of cichlids and breed most of them. i never seen one with a mouth full of eggs and still able to eat.

just like my jumbo cyps, one is holding right now. she darts at the food only to stop short and stare at the food as another fish eats it.
