video blog of my discus pair.
I find it hard to believe that you can get the other fish out without disturbing them too much...If they get stressed they may very well eat the eggs or newly hatched fry themselves...Things may very well get complicated when the fry start wriggling around, but I still think they have better chances if things are left as they are...
Leave your breeding pair alone. They need as much privacy as possible from you and your net. And make no changes in their routine. (aside from affording them more privacy)
Keep the other fish in your tank well fed!! Try something that fills their stomachs like small earthworms. But above all, make sure they're satiated so they don't bother your babies. I doubt very much they will eat the Discus fry.
I have a breeding pair of Blue Rams now with eggs and I'm leaving a tiny night light on when the overhead lights are shut off. I don't know if this helps or not but I'm afraid total blackness, especially when it comes on suddenly, might spook the parents. The night light is there to simulate the moon. Its not much - about the same amount of light the heater's indicator emits when its on, but it will allow for a more natural transition from day to night.
well thank you all and i had to take the bettas out because they would eat the fry but other than that i have decided to keep everyone in. and Robert thank you for bring the light up i have heard of it before by a breeder so when I saw they where spawning are started.
