I have 3 pairs of 'red forest jewels' (god knows what kind of a mix they are, species being commonly mixed now), one pair is mature at 6 years of age. This particular pair have spawned in 2 other homes, and i am wondering if they will breed in mine.
I have 13 small fish in a 170 litre tank. (overstocked, but i work in an aquarium and clean it bi-weekly). While spawning, will they attack other fish? and will the amount of fish in the aquarium mkae them feel spawning would be a risk against other fish?
And will they decide to change mates, as they previously had no contact with other jewel cichlids?

Any general information on red jewels would be appreciated, as everyone has something different or conflicting to say it seems.

Thankyou!, ravelle.
