Hello everyone 👋

My lab cichlid had been acting all aggressive lately..
.
.
.
I just found out why

I saw that the female's mouth is bulging
After I looked closely i found that she is carrying eggs in it..
So guys can you pzl give me some advice on what should my next step be?
How do I know that the eggs are fertilized?
🤔
Note I don't have a quarantine tank😕
I do have a glass partition i can place in my tank tough.

Any and all advice is welcome 👍

Thank you 🖤

Not much to do unless you plan on pulling the fry to raise separately.
You can separate mom to reduce the risk from other fish.
Put lots of hiding places for the fry once they are released, like rock piles with lots of little spots only the fry can get in.
Once they are released you can feed brine shrimp, or crush up some food fine so they can eat it.
To get the food to them, put a little in some tank water and suck it up with a turkey baster and shoot it in the direction of their hiding spots.
