    Had a hard time getting used to discus but they are doing much better now. It seems like the group of eight I purchased in October are starting to feel at home. Maybe I need to get the RO water going....

    The audience was hungry for eggs, they didn't last long.

    Richard,
    I think thats one heck of a nice fishroom you built. I have always dreamed of having something like that. Nice job and great seeing the fish are at the point where they will be breeding and raising fry soon. Knowing first hand how easy it is to have way too many fish getting it right at once then being over run with them, Have you given any thought as to how you will move out the fry? Are you in area with easy access to shipping businesses like FEDEX or USPS? Or near an area with good walk traffic? It will only take a few pairs to fill those tanks with fry.

    Thank you All,

    For me it is a dream come true. Growing up I spend a lot of time in the fish section of our local pet store, walls were lined with racks with tanks from top to bottom and I wanted something like that so bad.
    About 7 years ago I purchased about (24) 65 gallon tanks of e-bay and set them up in a bonus room attached to our Garage, nothing was convenient about that space and maintenance was tedious. Now that we build our new house I had the opportunity to build a room just for my tanks with plenty of space for extra tanks

    I have not even thought about what to do with excess fish since I am completely new to Discus and I am just now learning how to take care of them. The first group of discus I received from Hans in October has probably suffered from my lack of knowledge. The fish are not very uniform now but at least lately they seem to be comfortable and always begging for food. I hope that this spawning event is a sign that I am on the right track. I feed them beef heart mix from Hans in the morning and evening and freeze dried black worms ( from a supplier called Aquatic something ) several times during the day. So far they just refuse to eat anything else.

    Separated the pair, mixed half RO with tap water bringing the TDS to 70, KH 1, GH 3, PH 6.8

    For some reason the heater seemed to be a better option

    Lol, typical, provide a cone and they choose something else. I had the same issue, haha. A lot of breeders install their heaters horizontal for just that reason

    Adding another heater and shutting down the current one will solve the problem. I had angels that did the same thing.
