Breeding Jaguar Cichlids
 
My female jaguar has laid eggs and ate them how soon before they breed again? :-(

Could be a week to ten day's assuming the female is receptive to the males advances.
Pity the poor female who isn't.
These fish are not easily housed with other fish, and the young are often hard to find homes for.
Do you have an outlet for fry should they suddenly appear?
If not,, I would not want to breed them.
Both egg's and fry are often eaten by the Adult fish.
Would remove the fry should they make it to that stage, if trying to save them for sale .
