congrats on the spawn.

What size tank are they in? Looks like a 33G from that angle...could be a 55G too :)

I wish you all success in raising the fry.

For food, try microworms or baby brine shrimp.

it's a 90 gallon, part of the side is behind the bookcase.
I just put a divier in middle to separate them and the rest 3 discus.

Lets hope they hatch. Since it is their first spawn, there is a chance that they didn't do it right :)

I PM'd you more details.

I hope they do and they don't at the same time.
I understand your point. If the parent will take care babies at first, it will be not too bad... I'd like take some babies when they are moveable...never have a chance to deal with wild babies.

more like 3 days..you divided the tank? thats the easy part..raising past 6 weeks is the hardest part. hopefully they attract them to their bodies. they might get tasty looking before that. but sounds good so far..
