First several different types

Monomorphic: Meaning the same or very close to the same. Be it size
and or shape.

Dimorphic: Same species yet different in size shape and or color
making recognition of male and female easy to define.




Brooding


Paternal mouth brooder: Father carries the eggs and or fry in his mouth.
Maternal mouth brooder: Mother carries the eggs and or fry in her mouth.
Bi-parental brooder: Both mother and father carry the eggs and fry orally.
egg scatterer/ layer: Lays eggs on objects, plants, rocks, what have you.
substrate spawner: Lays eggs in the substrate, sand gravel, and so on.
cave spawner: Lays eggs in caves, usually sheltering the fry there.
parasitic mouthbrooder: Will lay eggs in a different type of fish spawn, and eat the eggs of the original fish spawn. Thus, the original fish, mouth broods the parasitic fry. Typical of some catfish in Malawi.

Is this a c/p?
If so, it would be nice to give the site credit or maybe post a link.
