I've bred jewels and some are very nervous. Make sure there is cover and plants. Dim the lights or don't use any light at all. There should be no foot traffic around the tank, no loud noises like radios are tv. Young jewels somtimes take a couple of spawns to become confident enough calm down and raise the clutch. Somtimes they will hatch the eggs but then eat the fry. They are not hard to breed but make sure they have a quiet, tank location that is not too brightly lit. Also young fish somtimes take a try or two to get it right.
