    Moved some fish around and got a new pair. They have been prepping that central plant for a couple days. Tank has Lemon Tetras, Cardinal Tetras, Buenos Aires Tetras, and a few danios. Has a bottom clean up crew and about 15 assassin snails to deal with the snail infestation.

    Tank looks good Fritz
    What strain is the other discus in the pair? I see a pigeon blood type but cannot see the other fish clearly enough to know what it is...

    Fritz my intention is not to discourage you, but the genetics of crossing a PB with a wild type or non-PB domestic usually results in a high percentage of very peppered offspring. With the time and effort required to grow out discus fry successfully it's not worth the hassle. If you're intentions are to practice and just experience this part of discus keeping then by all means have at er, but selling the fry would be difficult, and then you have to decide what you're going to do with them. All the best to you sir!
