This film records the breeding behaviour of the mouth breeder in the female sex Tilapia variabilis. The female releases the young from her mouth and they immediately swim to the ground and stay there. When a disturbance occurs, the female takes the young, which swim to her at once, back into her mouth, and releases them again shortly afterwards.
