I am new to the whole cichlid world. The pet store sold me a red zebra yesterday and upon further examination here today it seems as if she is holding eggs. It has been digging a ditch in the gravel and spitting them onto the side of the tank. Is that where the fry will be placed? I am uncertain about what to do next. She is in a 10 gal with 1 hongi and a couple of texans. After checking this site I am aware that a 10 gal is too small. Any help would be wonderful!! Thanks
