Well i have a serious problem. My 4 Duboisi gave me 12 babies. All survives and grew. As they got bigger to almost loosing their spots I started loosing them Mow I have one left. Is it that it's the first time the adlts gave me babies or what coild it be. I have not changed anything in the usual habits. There are also 10 red trogheouses with the Dubosi. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    I bet somebody is going after the juveniles. These fish are very aggressive! A group of at least  12 (11 females and one male) are the recommended minimum, and kept in a tank of between 75 to 125 gallons. The tank then needs to have tons of hiding places. It is further best that they be kept as the only species (i.e no other types of cichlids unless the tank is even larger).

    I know how you feel. When I first started getting cichlids I put a Dempsey in with some other community type fish. DOH! I guess I was being optimistic but of course it didn't work out. Now I only keep Dempseys singly or in breeding pairs. That first experience though was not pleasant, especially since the fish store guy kind told me how naive I was.
