So we are still really new at keeping cichlids and we'll we have just found some eggs, BUT I thought the two fish that have paired up and had them were two different fish?? I did originally think the big fish was a Central American eartheater and the little one a jewel cichlid! But I got confused looking at all the different pictures and figured they had to be the same fish. A jewel cichlid. What's going on with my fish?? And now the eggs are getting eaten
