right before christmas i found my two jewels lip locking in my 46 bow, we went on vacation and came back to find that one of my jewels belly is all swelled up, but they arent lip locking anymore.

i put them in a 10 gallon holding tank because i dont want them to lay eggs and kill my other fish.

is this how jewels breed? or are they fighting?

That (to me) looks like two females... but I am no expert. I know the males have more of a "blue hue" scales... females are generally red. The jewel closest to you in those pictures definitely looks like a female.

It just looks like they're fighting - the locking of the jaws. Jewel's lay eggs(hundreds of them) when they are breeding.
