A keeper on MFK sexed 'em for me and the lighter one is a female and darker is a male. So excited for the possibility of more :YMPARTY:

Yes, I think the sexing is correct. Good luck!

Great looking fish. I have had about 6 batches of lots of eggs from mine in the last 12 months and they are really fun. I have sold a bunch locally and have around 30 fry at the moment in a 20G long and feeding time is truly a frenzy. Good luck with them.

Thanks, how do you induce spawning? I've only seen one suggestion for doing multiple water changes leading up to a spawn event.

I feed heavily with frozen Blood worms, NLS cichlid pellets, Freeze dried tubiflex worms etc, and you will see the females fill with eggs. I also observe more chasing between my group and then start with water changes. I change about 20-25% per day for about 1 week and then spawning usually occurs. Eggs are laid in a cluster (like frogs eggs), which I then separate. They hatch in about 3-5 days and are perfect miniatures of the parents. Let me know if I can be of any more help!

Thanks. I have a cold water drip going into their tank currently. I feed frozen brine once a week. Otherwise, they get Ken's 0.5mm green fry pellets or Ken's 1-2mm cichlid pellets.

I didn't see the woodcats come out to eat but I picked up some live black worms and dropped a healthy serving in the tank.
