Jewel Cichlids



This is the female of my mated pair of jewels. I have some other pictures of the pair and fry which I will show after I edit them a bit.

Anyways... Your thoughts on this one?

Really, all I did was put two of them together. I had 5 firemouths with them, they killed 2 and 2 died later from wounds. So... I wouldnt put them in a community.

Ummm.... the tank is 10 gallons, I have it at around 82 degrees, give or take.
Yes, they were very easy to breed. They are actually african riverene cichlids, like kribensis. I bought them for about 3 dollars a piece, but I have seen them sell for $14 each. When the babies grow up, I might be able to send some. I am hoping/thinking they are going to be sow quality.
