Little babies in the house

Since some weeks, I am the lucky owner of a breed of baby rainbow cichlids.

During the first weeks, they've lived under the supervision of its parents. This species is popular among aquarium enthusiast because of it's behavior of active brood care, including herding, guarding and feeding its babies. It is a wonderful thing to observe.

After two weeks, I separated the approximately 40 little baby fish from my main tank, and I'm curenlty growing them in a separated small thank on my desk.

If anyone knows aquarium enthusiasts who might be interested in some of these wonderful creatures, let me know.
