 If  Jewels  are  of  ful  grown  size  it  wil  defend  its  nest  and  fries  from  other  fishes..  But  once  fries  are  hatched  separate  them  with  nets  and  grow  in  a  separate  tank..  apart  from  that  if  u  have  aequally  big  tank  u  can  manually  remove  other  fishes  apart  from  jewels  to  another  tnak  temporarily,  after  are  hatched  separate  them  with  nets  and  grow  in  a  separate  tank..  and  after  separating  teh  fries  put  back  your  other  fishes  like  before..

 where  have  they  laid  it?
 
 you  better  not  move  em.  you  can  try  and  move  the  eggs  if  its  on  a  single  piece  and  not  laid  on  the  gravel.  set  up  a  smaller  tank  with  some  deco,  gravel  and  water  from  the  50  gallon,  add  methenlyn  blue  or  what  ever  anti  fungal  meds  you  might  have.  drop  in  an  airstone  and  let  it  bubble  in  small  fine  bubbles.  do  you  have  food  for  em?  if  not  better  start  NOW.

 Hey  guys,
 
 thanks  for  the  reply.
 eggs  are  not  on  single  piece  of  surface.  so  i  better  not  disturb  them
 parents  are  defending  them  beautifully.  both  of  them  are  guarding  in  equal  intervals.  its  a  wonderful  view.
 
 i  dont  have  an  additional  tank  or  food  for  the  frys.  thought  to  partion  the  tank  with  a  plastic  mesh  partition.
 
 dolphin  and  morph  are  huge  so  i  cannot  get  a  2  feet  tank  to  fit  them  all.
 
 how  long  do  u  think  they  will  hatch?  it  was  laid  yesterday  morning.
 
 what  type  of  food  for  the  frys?

 Try  to  raise  the  fry  separately.  If  you  don't  have  a  tank,  use  a  sparetub  or  bucket  or  any  damn  container  and  aerate  it  gently.
 Buy  some  brine  shrimp  eggs.  Newly  hatched  brine  shrimp  eggs  are  ideal  food  for  the  fry.  Read  and  watch  you  tube  vids  which  give  detailed  instructions  on  setting  up  a  brine  shrimp  hatchery.
 Now  that  your  jewels  have  paired  (  for  life  ),  they  will  keep  spawning  every  month  or  so,  the  spawn  size  increasing  everytime,  provided  you  maintain  the  water  parameters.  If  you  wish  to  raise  every  batch  of  fry  (  which  I  recommend  you  must  if  yo  have  the  time  ),  get  a  couple  of  small  tanks  made.  Two  month  old  fry  can  be  sold  at  a  decent  price.  So  two  fry  tanks/containers  are  enough.
 All  the  best.   Thumb Up  
 
 P.S.  There  are  many  Videos  on  youtube  regarding  Jewelfish  breeding  and  fry  care.  Watch  them  if  you  are  really  serious  about  the  breeding  stuff.   Rock On

 setup  a  partition  immediately  and  barricade  the  eggy  area  from  the  rest  of  the  big  guys...  keep  the  parents  in  the  eggy  area  ofcourse....
 
 Immediately  build  a  DIY  brine  shrimp  hatchery  and  get  hold  of  a  bottle  of  brine  shrimp  eggs.  If  today  is  the  2nd  day  of  the  eggs,  they  would  hatch  in  another  day  or  two...  They  would  feed  off  the  yolk  sack  for  the  next  2-4  days  after  hatching  till  they  are  free  swimming.  Hence,  track  the  shrinking  of  the  yolk  sacks  and  once  you  feel  the  sacks  will  last  for  about  24  hours,  start  the  brine  shrimp  hatching  process.  
 
 By  the  time  the  yolk  sacks  disappear,  your  brine  shrimps  would  have  hatched  and  ready  to  be  fed  to  the  fries   Cheering  
 
 Enjoy  your  new  family  and  do  keep  us  updated  on  the  progress  :)
 
 there  are  a  lot  of  DIY  brine  shrimp  hatchery  tutorials  on  the  net...  should  not  be  a  problem  to  put  one  together...  its  a  pretty  simple  process...
 
 Cheers!!   Drinking

 At  the  worst  case  if  brine  shrimp  eggs  are  not  available  ,  go  for  the  egg  yolk,  boil  the  hen  eggs,  use  the  boiled  yolk,  just  take  a  pinch  of  it,  dissolve  it  in  water,  but  make  sure  the  amount  u  take  should  not  make  water  cloudy..

 You  can  also  try  powdering  tetra  bits  or  regular  pellets,  however  raising  fry  in  a  community  tank  is  difficult.
 The  parents  will  not  allow  other  fish  to  come  near  and  are  known  to  kill  much  larger  fish.
 I  have  raised  jewel  fry  on  powdered  tetra  bits.
 check  this.

 Congrats!!  You  are  truely  CONVICTED  now  it  seems   Chuckle  
 
 Powered  tetra  bits  suggested  by  Sandeep  is  just  fine.  But  I  would  also  suggest  you  give  a  mix  of  the  powder  and  hatch  brine  shrimps.  
 
 Keep  it  up  and  share  some  pics  dude...

 Congrats  dude.   Thumb Up  
 If  you  go  for  baby  brine  shrimp,  you  will  have  a  better  fry  survival  rate.
 Baby  fish  go  by  their  instinct  and  try  to  eat  anything  small  enough  to  fit  their  mouth,  that  moves.  The  continuous  darting  motion  of  baby  brine  shrimps  thus,  acts  as  a  stimulant  for  feeding.
 It's  not  late  to  buy  the  eggs  now  as  hatching  begins  in  24  hours,  if  the  conditions  are  right.  I  strongly  suggest  that  you  watch  the  online  videos  of  setting  up  a  brine  shrimp  hatchery  and  feeding  the  fry.  Here  are  a  few
 
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYRxnIjlS6Y

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6tDa_BcTlM
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uNkHPuGaqo
 
 That  will  be  more  than  enough.  If  the  eggs  fail  to  hatch,  you  can  go  for  the  backup  methods  suggested  by  the  experts.
 
 P.S.  Brine  shrimp  eggs  are  costly.  If  you  aren't  serious  about  breeding,  don't  go  for  it.  Go  for  powdered  feed.
