I'm having trouble finding some info for you on their breeding, but I have found out that they are mouth brooders. Here's a couple of links on geophagus.

geophagus brasiliensis (pearl cichlid).

and the geophagus steindachneri (redhump eartheater):

I would start with using similar breeding methods for geophagus and see what works. I hope this helps.

I bred a pair of geophagus brasiliensis (pearl cichlid). They laid there eggs on a piece of a flower pot. Spawning was similar to Angels. Very prolific,800+ eggs
