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.

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

Unlucky Cermet, I hope that the female green produces some eggs soon. Fingers crossedMy 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.Mucky
Unusually I have nothing more to add...
