Underwater video of Gymnogeophagys cf. gymnogenys pair with eggs

I shot this video November 2010 in the Rio Cuareim. The pair were tending eggs laid on a rock, near the bank in 30cm of water. Over the course of an hour the female buried the eggs in sediment/silt. The male left and the female periodically came back to check on the clutch.
