            Mouth-brooders carry their eggs or larvae in their mouth. Mouth brooders can be broken up into ovophiles and larvophiles. Ovophiles or egg-loving mouth- brooders lay their eggs in a Pit,which are sucked up into the mouth of the female. The small number of large eggs hatch in the mother's month, and the fry remain there for a period of time. Many cichlids and soma labyrinth fish are ovophile month-brooders. Larvophile or larvae-loving month-brooders lay their eggs on a substrate and guard them until the eggs hatch . After hatching , the female picked up the fry and kees them in her mouth. When the fry can feed for themselves,they are released.

                Ovophile month-brooders can be bred in the main aquarium because the eggs are produced in the month cavity.However, it is better to separate mouth-brooders with eggs because of their potentially aggressive behavior. There are no special breeding tank requirements others than the usual tank set-up for the species. Larvophile mouth-brooders should be placed in a separate breeding tank because the eggs are produced in the month but laid on a surface where they are open to predators.

  1. A well-maintained tank needs bacteria in it in order to sustain life. A brand-new tank with clean, pure water free of chlorine is important, but without a developed bacteria colony, what happens is that aquatic newcomers get overwhelmed by the sudden onset of ammonia present in their byproduct waste. aquarium lovers
