I would say no. Jewels are aggressive.

if they are to aggressive i will keep them in the 20. i will prob just add one to see how it reacts. (i tried putting my betta in there and my runt almost killed him)

The jewels really need to go in a different tank. Not a good tankmate for a discus. Good luck,

I have jewels and they are so mean they kill each other.

I keep them separate from the discus in there own tanks. (2 tanks with 3 jewels)

No. No. No. (On mixing them with discus)

They are going to target the eyes of your discus.

I've got a tankful of red jewel cichlids and trying to get rid of them. They're yours if you want them. I started out with 3. 1 paired up and now I'm trying to get rid of them.

And yes they cannibalize each other when they get the chance.
