I know this is not marine related, but I still wanna show them off.

I set up a 30g FW tank for cichlids to have something to tinker with while I'm working on my 150. I purchaed several African cichlids from a LFS that were too young to be able to sex. Luck have it that I got a pair of yellow cichlids that took a liking to each other. Now 3 months after setting up this tank we have 5 or 6 babies. I have them in a 10g that I used to QT the mommy while she was brooding the eggs, and have since moved her back to the main tank.

So for 3 months in, I guess I'm doing something right.

For size reference, this is aragonite sand they are floating ove
