Ok I have a 55 right now with a 6-7" Ebjd I believe is a male,5"BGJD male,and a jd female 4". The BGJD and jd have paired off and established a nest and have been guarding for days. I looks like the females tubes have dropped . My question is how long before I see eggs? I have not been successful with breeding jds this is my first attempt. I have bred smaller cichlids in the past but never jds. My female will come to the center of the tank (all 4" of her and wait) then my Ebjd will come out and they start there dance lip locking and what not. Then my BGJD male comes out and joins the scrap. Is this normal behavior? I seems like the pair is fighting the big ebjd. I have dithers in the tank that have been going one by one each day due to the aggression . I'm not to concerned about the Ebjd because he can hold his own against the two. Am I on the right track here or should I change this up?
