    Well, if the cichlids are young or inexperienced breeders they might be eating the eggs themselves which given the other species you have might be the most likely option. If the loricariids (‘plecs’) are a decent size they might be responsible though. Any idea what species they are?

    How big is the tank? It may not be practical to separate the keyholes as you will want to have sufficient room on their side of the divider that they will not feel stressed (which will lead to a reoccurence of the egg eating) as well as keeping enough space on the other side for the remaining fish. Bear in mind also that any divider must allow water to circulate on both sides unless you intend adding a second filter.

    As a side note, the common plec Hypostomus plecostomoides is a large and messy fish which requires a large tank, good filtration and a specialist diet.
