    The breeding tank has finally cycled and got these two transferred over to the tank.
    This pair has spawned numerous times and the eggs have been viable but end up getting eaten or calcify in the community discus tank.
    I am going to see how they do in this tank. After a couple spawns if the eggs are still calcifying going to invest in an R/O unit.

    Stats:
    It is a basic breeding set-up.

    30 gallon tank
    Heater: Cobalt Neo-therm
    Whisper Air-pump
    Tidal Filter- w/adjustable flow.
    Spawning cone

    Water Parameters:
    PH 7.2; KH 3/GH 5.
    Temperature: 84

    Thanks, Mike! I got some good advice to cover the sides and back from Joe Bilotta, so that is what I am doing today. I also will be getting some juveniles pretty soon from Poppa Ryno-- some of his Piwow's- excited to get a group of these. :)

    Dinner: The female doesn't like me in front of the tank, but the male doesn't mind eating with me taking pictures at all.

    I believe you should cover the front as well, especially if they scare easy.
    Goodluck with the spawning, awesome fish and lovely colours. Cant wait to see the juvies.

    Not a bad idea really my discus pair I had spawning regularly at one point needed at least half the front of the tank the cone was on covered to get a successful spawn they would raise up and not eat I just went with half so I could still perform water changes etc I just made it routine to be in front of them siphoning the bottom etc

    Your discus look very nice- I love the colors. I hope they (and the babies) do well.
