heres the video of the hatched out babies :)
duuude get rid of the angel and tetras or ur fry are gona be a midnight snack. give them to like a petstore to hold for u for like a week or 2 till they grow big enough
and how many discus did u have in the tank? like did u get a bunch and they paired off or just these 2 that bred
and i dont think their hatched yet. there still wrigglers
my angels and tetras are in my 20 gallon right now and
they are larva right not so they hatched
and these is the only pair i have right now the other discus are still a little to young to pair off just yet.
I can't really see the eggs that well in the video. Are you sure you have larvae? Eggs normally take 3 days to hatch. Interesting that the eggs are in two different places - never seen that before.
I'm glad you're removing the other fish. Its not like they'll eat the eggs or anything but they make the parents nervous - and when that happens the parents eat the eggs. Don't turn out the lights completely. Leave a night-lite on or maybe some kind of lamp outside the tank. It will simulate moonlight.
Watch Mike's video. Its all very scientific sounding with the German accents and all, but there is some pretty good info in there. Water changes, soft water, and acidic water helps the eggs a lot. In Hong Kong they're breeding Discus in water that is GH 5 and PH 7.5. I wouldn't call that hard water but its definintely not soft. Their hatch rate isn't as good as Thailand's where the water is soft but they're getting some results.
If you do end up with babies I'm gonna have some questions for you... when Angelfish were first imported to the USA nobody could breed them but now they breed like Guppies. Maybe Discus are mutating like Angelfish. Babies that survive tank breeding are more likely to breed successfully in tanks. Its Darwin's principle of natural selection being played out by people like you all over the world.
I've got some Discus I'm hoping to breed now. Never had luck in the past but we'll see. Keep us posted.
ill keep everyone posted and it was three days before they hatched. They laid Thursday while i was at the lake tomorrow or Wednesday the larvae should free swim to the parents.
