Yes that's a beautiful girl! Is this the first time they've spawned? I have a breeding pair of jewels and I swear, all they do is hide & lay eggs... I never see them!

I usually leave the fry in the tank with them, because I don't have a place to grow them out. The parents will get rid of them when they are ready to spawn again.

It's the first time. When they get big enough I will sell some. The rock they did it on is right in the front of the tank.

Mine have a big rock "cave" they spawn in (see avatar) and they take this parenting business VERY SERIOUSLY! ;) They don't come out to socialize with me at all, they even wait until I leave to come out and eat when I feed them.

Those jewels are beautiful.... I remember the first time mine spawned.... I was really excited... bought a 10gal grow out tank and everything..... but my jewels kept breeding every three weeks!!! Ha Ha
