My male peacock cichlid and the mystery silver Cichlid female had mated and she had babies in a nursery net, it's been five days now and the babies have grown quite a bit.. lol
I have video of them that I'll be posting later on just to let people observe

I wasn't able for some reason to upload or see any of my pictures or videos from my phone's camera gallery so I hope uploading it to YouTube and posting the link works lol I don't have much for options..

They are now free from the nursery net and in their own 30gal.
I'm curious to see what they'll look like once they grow some more.

Does anybody know when or how long it takes for the features to start showing?

Update: I'm beginning to notice subtle distinguishable markings on several of my peacock cichlid juvies/fry.
Most have stripes and black blotches going horizontally across their bodies, but I have noticed a few that have only vertical stripes and an odd black stripe that goes across their heads and over the eyes.
Very interesting
