So I went ahead and stripped two holding female Callochromis macrops. Managed a pretty good haul of about 31 fry. Here is hoping I can raise them to maturity.

I have 8 that are at 3cm currently. Haven't had another mouthful in a while though and I plan on keeping these 8 and growing up a larger group to use as breeding stock.

Found them really easy to raise once the female spat, but starting to see a couple of the larger fry picking on the others. They're pretty hard on their conspecifics.

That is pretty special as well.  Do you have a photo of the parents? I want to see how different they are to normal macrops.
