    I have a pair of black belts, one is 5 inches one is 8 inches and they had babies about one week ago. Second batch. These ones I think will survive.

I have a Blackbelt that is a good 6 to 7 inches. She I think is rearranging my tank literally. I only have 1 but wondering if she may be trying to lay eggs or what? She has just started this and I have seen her pick up huge pea gravel rocks that I have in my 120 gallon. She next to a rainbow cichlid is the most AWESOME fish and grows at a fast rate.
