    Default Discus wonít spawn

    I have a pair of Discus pH 7, water hardness is around 100 and zero ammonia the water temp is around 84. They constantly clean around the same spawning cone and def seem to be a pair, but they wonít actually spawn
    I feed them brine shrimp, beef heart and blood worms and do 50 percent r/o water change every 3 rd day. Any suggestions?

    Maybe you have two males. Have you seen their breeding tubes?

    So the female has a larger breeding tube then the male. It's larger with a squared off end. The males is smaller with a rounded end. Also do you have them in straight RO water?

    Iím 99 percent certain from their breeding tubes and the fullness in the female. I mix tap and r/o water.

    Iíve had them about 6 months, I would guess 1.5 years. I have them in a tank with 2 more discus, if I take the other pair out they completely lose interest in each other.
