Grind up some quality flake, and scatter near the fry.

thanks for the tip but do you have a fancy tip of how i can get the ground up flakes to them. the jewels dug a whole like semi underneath a piece of log i've got in the tank. i can make something like a rod type thing thing but i don't want to disturb to much near the fry cause i'mscared i might chase the jewels away and they might not return to the fry (or am i to paranoid?)

feed the parents and they will feed the fry for you. no need to make special food for them.

And make sure that your pics aren't too big or they won't upload.

Finally i got it working. These are my pride and joy. on the left i think is the male and obviously the other one is the female. the reason i say this is because the "male" is a lot more aggressive towards my other fish and he is bigger than the "female". i also read somewhere that the shiny blue spots is more prominant on the male than on the female. you can't see the babies though but i will try and get a better pic of them soon.
