Sadly the fish died last night, it was riddled with holes :(
But with death comes life, I found 7 or 8 eggs in a crack between some slates and an angry-looking female Julidochromis Ornatus guarding them. After a while I noticed some tiny babies (presumably a previous brood) clinging upside down to the rocks around the same area. These are fish I haven't kept until this year so as ever I'm pleased to see something new occuring in my tank. They will be transferred to a fry tank once the second batch of eggs has hatched. I will probably also move the pair with them as apparently this helps to maintain the bond between them and they seem like great parents too.
