red Jewel cichlid babies

Our red jewel Cichlids gave birth rather unnexpectedly last night. If we had noticed they were pregnant we would have relocated them to a "nursery tank". anyhow, nothing we can do now.. its nice to see them collecting the fry in their mouths and occasionally relocating to secluded corners of the tank.

they've now found a hollow aquarium decorative submarine.. that has small openings(none of the other tankmates will fit) so hopefully the babies will stay here for a while
