    Unhappy Yet Again but different

    Since it appears we could use a new Discus thread, just thought I'd give a little update on my discus. The original breeding pair (two blues) had a male that just didn't get it. They cleaned the breeding cone, the female laid the eggs and the male never figured out his role! After eight to ten attempts, I gave up and shut the breeding tank down and placed the pair back into my common discus tank that holds all my blue discus.

    Well, two other discus in my other tank (my Green's) paired off and I added a breeding cone that they have both have been cleaning. Then a few times a day, the MALE does his thing and the female ... just watches ... the issue is that she hasn't figured out that she was supposed to lay eggs first!

    Some days you can't win for losing!

    So, I have a male blue that doesn't get it and now a female green that doesn’t ... be nice if I could mix them but I'd hate the combo color so , that just isn't gonna happen.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    IS the green female a lost cause or might she still learn her part?
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    I will give it time and see - she might be confused and just not ready but thinks she is. Hopefully, she will cycle into egg laying mode soon before the male gives up. Of course, then I'll have to remove the other discus and temp them in the breeding tank (its still running but just has two large Gouramis who keep the filter partly cycled.)

    Unlucky Cermet, I hope that the female green produces some eggs soon. Fingers crossed
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I would sure like to see some pictures of your Discus if you have any you would share with us! I love the fish but have never jumped into them as i am intimidated by them and the Care they need!

    Have tried taking water from the tank with the blue discus to the green discus pair tank, that's an old commercial trick.

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...
