Thread: Jewel cichlids

  1. #1

    Default Jewel cichlids

    Hi everyone!

    Two weeks ago one of my breeding jewel cichlids (the femal one) died. They had been living together for over 2 years. Would the male like me to buy him a new companion, or would he just fight with her since she's new in the aqarium?
    What do you think?

    Hi
    He most likely would like one, however you have to find a suitable feamle otherwise the male might end up killing his new girlfriend.

    Well she should be the appropriate size i.e. if your male is adult then you should be looking for an adult female. They should match etch others strength.

    Also I am good if the female is in spawning condition. So if possible, condition her before letting her to the male.

    Keep a close eye on what’s happening after you but her in the aquarium with the male.

    That's good to know, William. I'll keep that in mind if the male jewel dies and I need a new companion for the female.
