Hello. I'm new to this forum. I am looking for help regarding jewel cichlids.
I have a pair of jewel cichlids that lay and fertilize eggs every 2 - 3 weeks. After 24 - 36 hours, the female eats them all. Can anyone explain this to me?

has this happened many times? sometimes it happens the first few times that the eggs get eaten, also what tank mates are in there with them because she might also eat the eggs if she feels threathened.
