Default General Question

Just a general question which is not happened to me yet just asking the question.

If you have a breeding colony and you leave the babies to go full term and grow up naturally in the tank , do the large adults see the babies as food ie does the large male father feast upon his own offspring ?

I have some fry released in my mpimbwe tank, they went full term and hide under the structures. the adults dont seem to pay a lot of attention to them. they are a pain to try and catch though

Mine dont bother my small young ones at all
theyre easily food if the adults wanted to eat them, but they dont

up to you if you want to risk it

because mine dont eat them doesnt mean yours wont
