Cichlids Breeding Pair


New member
I have a 120 gallon tank which is populated with African Chichlids which where given to me by a friend. I have had them for about 8 months and so I am still learning about them. My question concerns the fact that I apparently have a breeding pair and I am experiencing what seems to be about 2 new babies a week. I am new to Cichlids and am trying to learn what there breeding habits are.
I am also concerned about what I should do to manage a possible over population of my tank. any advice would be appreciated

What species are the Cichlids that are breeding? What other species of Cichlids and how many adult fish do you have in your aquarium? Welcome to Cichlidaholics Cichlid Forum.
