Yes red wigglers from a bait shop. They are much smaller and softer than nightcrawlers and large cichlids love them. Also, live blackworms... they're hard to find, but all fish got crazy for them. You might also try mosquito larvae and - from the bait shop, "spikes" which are maggots. They are great bait for ice fishing and aquarium fish love them. I use most of the frozen fishfood products from lfs- bloodworms, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, krill... but for breeding I would preffer live foods like the wigglers or maggots, or if you can get live mosquito larvae.
Good luck!

I just rehomed all my jewels because I couldn't keep up with the babies. The live earthworm advice is excellent..I fed mine flake, bottom feeder pellets, shrimp pellets (I recommend for pre-spawn), frozen daphnia, frozen bloodworms,freeze dried bloodworms, cichlid pellets. A procedure I liked to use was borrowed from betta breeding..that is keep the female in a gallon jug sitting inside 20 gallon tank where he is. Let them see each other for a week like this, then release her. They were both bright red two days later. Two days after that..eggs.
