New fish in a new tank in the library are doing surprisingly well

I thought the fish weren't doing so hot, but wasn't I in for a surprise. They laid eggs. Can't be hurting that bad if they are breeding.

This tank will be running aquaponics shortly. The library is just off the kitchen, so I will be growing some kitchen herbs such as basil, and cilantro and lemon grass and the like.

  1. I used to have Black convicts. They are great parents. They allways take good care of the eggs. It is wieard that the eggs didnt make it. Temperature is important. I think that keeping the water "warm" is good for these type of cyclids. Also it is good to watch if the female is eating when you give them food. Sometimes during feeding it may happen that both parents leave the nest to eat. And at this time bad things happens.
