Hi every 1 its me again, my pair still have not lay wonder what am i doing wrong. I got a pair of discus which lay and I got about 20 free swimmer which died because they was around the sponge filter and not the parents so they died lack of food. Now I make a overflow syphon and a sump take out the sponge filter so the tank was all white. Now I had a breeding pair before and they lay every 7 days and this pair lay about 3 month ago, so what am I doing wrong. They lay the eggs when the tds was about 85. There are cleaning the slate alot and doing there little wiggling so i think something still there, at the moment my tds is about 75 i got a air line with some k1 in the tank as well r may b the change it take them longer to settle down. let mi know wat u all think

Should I put a sponge filter in the tank

Some people do a water change with lower temperature water to stimulate breeding............

Patients young grasshopper. Nature will let them know when to spawn.

But a good cool water change may help.

i agree with jeff, also i have had pairs that go on a cycle where they will breed for a while and then stop for a while, it just takes patients and daily 50% water changes...lol. good luck.

p.s. Patients young grasshopper. Nature will let them know when to spawn...lol. jeff

Best way to get a pair to spawn is buy another pair. Works everytime.

Just keep good water for them. You will never know. My CBs pair sometimes will lay eggs again after 3-4 days from the previous batch. Sometimes they will stop for 2-3 weeks. Just condition with good food and clean water. Sometimes live feed will also help them to spawn.
