    The very first pair that we're very protective parents and fended off other fish, raised about 40 to the size of about a dime or a little bigger. My dumbass decided to switch filtration systems during that time and I killed them by accident.
    The second pair several years later that were just as good as the first particular pair, raised there's until about 5 weeks when I forgot to put seacham safe
    In the tank when I was filling it back up during a water change. All fish we're stressed. Only one little one survived and made it to about a year but only grew to about 4.5 in. That year I did horrible on water change routine because of being in the middle of my master's program, working full-time, and having my first kid.
    I have a pair right now that might be good enough to be my third pair that can raise a few but the "boss" discus of the tank keeps over powering female when the Male (not the "boss") strays away for a minute. Very frustrating. Boss eats them

    Sorry about those mishaps. Incredible how they were able to grow into the 5 weeks in a community tank. Congratulations on your masters! I'm literally done with my BA now and starting to apply to med school. The real hard work starts now.

    Finally got somewhat of a picture of a female while all gold.
    Few pics of a Male too. The one of the female has a little one from the first bond in the top right of the picture
