Hello and welcome to TFK! I know nothing of keeping and breeding cichlids. I have seen the tumblers available. Hopefully a member will come along with knowledge and the answers for you. Good luck.

Usually takes a new couple a several times to get the parenting right. Eating the eggs is often a sign of nervousness, which may be a result of stress. Might also be that they haven't found the right place to lay them yet.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

I don't think you need to worry about a tumbler..something is making one or the other nervous or a few cichlids are egg eaters. I've never had jewels eat eggs. They are pretty good at moving their clutch in the middle of the night..sure they didn't do that? If they are spawning on a rock, just match your water and steal the eggs. Put air bubbler right next to eggs and wait(80 degrees good)one to five days..

jewels

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.

I live by myself so I guess I don't have traffic problem..I would suggest a good lid..I''ve lost fish to jumpers.

Breeding is encouraged by correct ph, water hardness, perfect temp, and high quality foods. Also not too bright lights or too much water current. My fish loved live red worms and glass shrimp.
