Breeding jewel cichlids?
 
Hi everyone. I have had 6 jewel cichlids in my 63 gallon tank for a few months now. They are a couple of years old I think and in the last few days one of them has just stayed inside a certain cave while a larger on just guards the cave all day and chases off anyone who comes near. Would this mean that the one in the cave is a female while the one guarding is the male and they're going to breed? I hope they have fry but i don't know if his even means theyre breeding. Can anyone tell me what they're doing and how to care for jewel Cichlid fry that's if they're gonna have some. Thankyou
