so i took the fry from my red jewels about 3-4 weeks about. i placed them in a basket hanging in thier tank. well recently i moved the fry to a clear box i made for the fry which is still hanging in the parents tank. the parents have discovered thier fry in the box and have not taken to gaurding the box from all other fish lol. kind of like double protection.

lol!

i think it is a bad thing as it puts stress on other tank mates and they will not breed again with fry still around. i am going to have to move the little guys i think.

Use to raise Red Jewels back in the 70's (showing my age :) but always bred them in seperate tanks. The parents were for the most part great with the fry, sometimes had to remove the male but not often. The thing back then was trying to breed more of the red into them but from what I have seen on market today they are about the same, still a beautiful and easy to keep cichlid. Good Luck

I've probably already burned Kory out with this one but just for the sake of a more informed decision I'd love to hear your thoughts. I have a 36G bow front that has had two red jewels in for several months all alone. I tried adding 2 dempseys (i know, i know - african and american cichlids not a good mix). Charge it to I'm learning. anyway the jewels tried to kill the dempseys. It was WAR so I removed the dempseys. this tank is in my office and I love the jewels but I wanted more. So here's the question, I want to change black gravel to sand, change plants, replace clay pots with granite. If I do this, do you guys think I will be able to add other african cichlids same size or larger and more of them to this 36G tank?

How did you remove the fry without disturbing the whole tank? I have a 75 gal tank and my red jewels have the fry under a piece of driftwood. I want to move them to a 10 gal tank to grow. but not sure how to remove them.
I was thinking of using a manual syphon for tank cleaning to suck up the fry into the new tank.

Jewel cichlids are african cichlids but not from the lakes, They will do just fine with Dempseys given the proper space. Unfortunately Jewels are mean breeders and will fight fish 5x their size if they needed to and might win. They are nasty little fighters. The only thing you could add would be target fish , or maybe a salvini.
