male and the female typically become more colorful when
it’s time to breed. The abdomen of a females’ body
turns reddish or
pinkish when she enters into her spawning cycle. A slightly acid water
and warmer water temperatures will help induce spawning.
You will want to place the pair in a breeding tank. Males can become
territorial when they enter their breeding cycle.
You will know your rams are about to spawn when the expectant
parents begin to clean a flat surface to deposit their eggs on.
Cichlids rarely deposit their eggs on barren substrate when a more
suitable nursery is available.
