Have you seen the little fishies?

Sadly, the hundred or so baby jeweled ciclids are no longer in the tank. I don't think it was predators - Mom & Dad were keeping them under guard pretty well. They had plenty of food & air and the tank is clean, so I'm puzzled. Usually by this time a half dozen would be seen around the moss and in the parental cave. The adult pair have been in their dug-out cave under the rocks a lot, I suspect there will be another hatching.

Meanwhile, the male betta died. Pretty much killed off by the female, who is now 3/4 of the way transitioned into male. Fish do that sometimes, when a male is infertile, which this one seemed to be. So the dilemma is do I buy a replacement male, female or pair? The latter, probably. Let them duke it out.
