Hi, My electric blue's bred last friday and I was wondering when it would be a good time to strip the mother of the fry? Do electric blues look after their fry upon birth? What about the timeframe for peacocks?

mixing cichlids by Wellman
Is it safe to mix any cichlid as long as they're from the same lake? I'm thinking of changing my 30 gal tank to a small cichlid tank. Very colourful ones would be nice. Any suggestions? Martin
