Mouth brooders. I had mixed tank with african cichlids in it. One night a large elongotis was twitching next to a small orange one. I thought this was so wierd so I did some reading and found out that he was fertalizing the eggs in her mouth. She didn't eat for weeks and then they hatched (in her mouth). It was the coolest thing I have ever seen. After a few days she put them under rocks where the other fish wouldn't get to them. The where all over the tank. They stayed there until they were big enough not to get eaten.

I found a book that had AWESOME pictures of cichlids, especially them spawning and the babies! If you get a chance to go to a library, check and see if they have "Aquarium Fish of the World: the comprehensive guide to 650 species." They have the cutest pictures of babies swimming out of their mom's mouth.
