General Body Form:
Allow pairs to form naturally from a group of six if possible. These fish are easy breeders, and will defend their fry even in a community tank. Eggs are laid on a flat area of rock or other surface, and are cared for by both the male and female. Parents will take turns fanning the eggs and warding off predators, and will continue to care for fry once they become free swimming. Once free-swimming, fry may be fed microworms and baby brine shrimp for the first few weeks, and will also pick at microscopic flora and fauna present on surfaces in the tank.
