Discus. At least I'm 99% sure a discus as I also have a white. I'd be crushed if I lost mine. Poor Plumkin.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Wow. They are amazing! Are you starting to research and line up LFS to take them? No you can't keep them all !! How old/big do they have to be when they "go"?
Isn't it amazing how curious they are at such a young age?

Thank you for the update!!

I just read through this thread. Great job on breeding Discus. I wonder if I should put the magnet in my GBR tank? They laid their first batch of eggs on wood, but did eat them Is there something special about the magnet? What are you going to do with all those babies?
