I have been fortunate enough to have bred the African butterfly fish and I was a little surprised when Mark Denaro said that they are mouthbrooders. When I bred them the eggs floated to the surfaced and I removed them to a tank of their own. I call this breeding a successful failure as I managed to keep the fry alive for three weeks before the last one succumbed to fungus. Could someone confirm if they are mouthbrooders or not.

Seriously Fish has them listed as egg-scatterers. Live Aquaria states just what you mention, the eggs float to the top of the water...
