    My 3 Jewel Cichlids have been in the 40 gal by themselves for 4 days, and I just got back from work to find 2 of them guarding the biggest load of eggs I have ever seen. Seriously, there must be 500 eggs there. The third Jewel is being thrashed, so he's coming out and going back into the 90gal. The pics don't show half of the eggs, but it looks like I'll be having a tank full of wigglers soon!
