Hi guys,

Could people please advise what they observed when a discus pairs off in a tank with other discuses and fish?

Mine hang out with each other or ignore each other. They will actively chase away the other two discus. They generally ignore the other fish in the tank (non-discus). They will clean off a smooth hard surface, frequently doing this together. This may be a piece of slate, tile, ceramic pot, filter intake tube, etc. They will lay and fertilize eggs.

Thanks fishguy! I will wait and see if this behaviour will occur...
