Spawning Discus

Post by Klaus Steinhaus » Sun Feb 07, 2010 3:49 pm

When I took over these Discus from a friend, all I wanted is to see if I could keep them alive. Well, I guess I can...........

There are three Discus in the tank, two males and one female. I suspected for a while that the female paired up with one of the males but had no proof.
The spawning male was a busy boy. He had to keep the female happy and to fight his rival off.

Thanks guys.
The eggs only lasted a day but it sure was nice watching them. It was their first spawn.
