I have been waiting a long time to finely get these guys to breed..It has been nearly a year sens i got them as little guys just around 2 inches...courting behavior has been going on for months ..and finely today after a large water change I found eggs!!!

5-7 days until hatching 11-14 days before free swimming...more updates to come!

fingers crossed that they are good enough parents to keep the bn pleco away.

They're kinda weird looking; not at all what I think of when I think of cichlids. It's almost like someone crossed a grouper with a stiphodon.

That said, it's very apparently a benthic fish, and that does seem to be your preference, so I'm happy for you.

then not looking like cichlids it probably exactly why I like the so much..not really a fan of allot of other cichlids.

these guys have amazing community behaviors...when not trying to breed they all come out when the lights first come on..all the younger fish pile on top of out dominant male pictured above ..rub on him and slide agents each other ..fighting to sit on his head before he takes off and runs up and down the tank glass and all over the tall anubia..with 6 other Tinanti trailing behind him...so amusing to watch.
