Lol, don't worry, they will spawn again soon. My pairs took about five spawns before they got it right.

PS. Thanks for the welcome backs, I really missed not being here!!

Unless they are a confirmed pair you have no way of knowing if they will ever spawn until they do. They may never spawn, even though they are poking at the pot. Two of my discus are always poking at the same spot but nothing has ever happened. I've had them for two years. At least you have another pair that are actively spawning.

AWESOME!!!! CONGRATS!!!

I bought 6 Juvie discus in April this year, 4 Red Turqs and 2 Blue Turqs. Can't wait until mine pair up and spawn, I am practicing with Angelfish until then also (I have 3 breeding pairs). I actually am raising a spawn of gold x marble fry, and in about 10 minutes ill be feeding them some BBS lol just waiting for the BBS hatchery to settle.

I will definetly come back to watch your progress, good luck!

PS- I didn't read everything as I am in a hurry, but are you going to self-raise the discus fry or let the parents take care of them for about 2 weeks?
