I have just discovered Discus eggs in my tank and the two Discus fish I have are huddled besides them very protectively, fending off any other fish that come near.
Can anyone help with advice on how I can proceed to ensure they survive to adulthood.
I know absolutely nothing about the subject, so any information anyone can provide would be most welcome.
i know once they hatch they are left alone with the parents because they feed on their body slime. hope it helps
The fry will feed on the mucous from the parents for a period of tome, 2-3 weeks. They can then be fed infusoria and baby brine shimp. be careful to maintain the temp between 82-86 degrees Farhenheit. Remove any power filters that may ingest the fry. Finely crushed flake food may be fed at about 10-12 weeks. Watch for fast growers, larger fry have been known to canniblize the smaller brethren, though I have not had that happen in a very long time. Keep water clean with frequent, adequate water changes. Aged water is best. good luck and congratulations.
lupins just jealous cause i got here first. :wink: btw hope the fry are fine
