PS. 147 is a small fraction of the eggs that a discus can lay in a single brood.
I feed baby Discus newly hatched brine shrimp(bbs) primarily, especially many decades ago when I mainly bred wild fish.
Now I introduce them to earth worm flakes crumbled up some at 10 days and since I blend beef heart mix after I grind during preparation, the fry can often begin eating that quite early from what I feed the adults. But I believe in keeping feeding bbs as long as they are less than 3 cm at least once a day.
I am currently only trying to breed some wild Nhamunda Blue Discus.
I know that some pairs lay a huge number of eggs but the largest single spawn I have raised which was from a pair of wild browns, was 147.
Most of my Domestic spawns have resulted in less than 100 fry. I only count the number of fry I actually raise and not how many eggs were laid.
