Thanks rick. My discus ended up laying just over 100 eggs pretty small batch but then again the female is full grown at only 4 inches. Im hoping to raise their offspring to be bigger. I didnt feed them very well as they were aging because i didnt know they eat so much!I wouldn't be worried. What you see sticking out is her ovipositor and it's not uncommon for them to make dry runs over the spawning site.
