My breeding pair of alenquers. They've yet to spawn; however, they've been doing "practice runs" regularly, so it should just be a matter of time! Wish we had more thunderstorms over here :D Enjoy!

Thanks guys! I do my best with the maintenance. This is my first try at breeding discus, so feel free to give any recommendations regarding the setup!

Beautiful looking discus.

Unfortunately I can't give any help to the situation as I know nothing of discus :(

Hi Harry
You might just want to keep a close eye on your tank puppies. There's definitely some kind of atmospheric change going on - not only can I feel it but my pigeonblood and red cover throwback females are getting ready to spawn I expect either later tonight or tomorrow. Better than that - my female heckel looks like she may have found an interested blue wild. They have been dancing all day. Do a BIG water change and drop the temp by a couple of degrees. Good luck!

It's true :) But I'm not giving up on them so easily!! Plus, I remember Shelley saying that she had too many tanks to deal with already... :D

Thanks! Right now, they're on ocean nutrition discus flake, colour bits, and frozen bloodworms. Looking to add new life spectrum pellets to their diet soon too.

Hey - stand in line!!! I want them - ask Harry how I pestered him through pm's to get them. He's tough; wouldn't give in!!!
I can top any offer from Shelley or April, I'll give you 2 red covers that I got from April(at least the same size as yours) for the brown/blue one on the left of the picture

:)

Limited time offer :D

Very tempting, but I'd never separate them. That would be just cruel :D

I am curious though - why do you like the male so much?

Yeah, Joe - separating them would just be cruel ;) You stick to your guns, Harry!!!! But should you ever change your mind, remember I'm first in line :) (don't worry about April!!!). This weather should be doing something for them - both my pigeonblood and red cover t/b's have spawned.

I just like the color. I got the other one that was that color from April and the color looks great in my display tank.

I'm doing the opposite of what you are trying to do in that I'm trying to prevent breeding and alsways seem to be giving away 1/2 of a pair to stop the breeding. I want peace and harmony in the display tank, not aggression and babies

2 red covers from April's for the male - offer still stands and Shelley's just talking - she's got no room plus she keeps monos with her discus !! :rolleyes:
