    There's some info on breeding them on these sites (it appears that the hardest part is finding a compatible pair).

    But before you start breeding, you need to make sure you can get rid of all the fry. You don't want to be stuck with hundreds of baby jewels and no place to put them. And don't just assume your LFS will be pahhy to take them off your hands. Many won't even accept fish from private breeders and the ones that do will probalby stop accepting them after about the first 30 or so you drop off.

    Its as easy to breed jewels as it is kribs. Its basicly just like breeding guppies. except they go about it in a diffrent way. I have had just as much luck breeding.

    :thick skin haps

    i'm trying german ram's and am not having much luck (not that i actually do anything).

    For example all i do is add the fish to the tank. and all of the above have reproduced several times each. i dont even check the hardness or other water conditions. just regular cleanings.
