These guys didn't care that I was that close to the front of the tank, so I decided to take a video -- They still didn't care lol

And I was just thinking last night, it's been a while since I've seen anything about Len's wilds. :)

Well I don't want to count my chickens (or discus ) before they're hatched. It's a different male, but they aren't a proven pair yet. So far they have laid and then eaten the eggs within 2 days. They seem to be determined though because I had to move all of my tanks last week several times and even after being put in a bucket for an hour or so then plopped back into the tank they spawned the next day. This is the second spawn since then, but that was the male in the video and I hadn't seen him doing any runs previously. Not sure if size matters in discus, but my god when I looked today it looked like half of his intestines were stuck out lol.

It was the male that was busy in the video, but they ate the eggs two days later. It's a new pairing so maybe they need to practice?

They will get it right for you Len.
