    Thanks Pat. I see their faults but overall I think they are much above average.

    Mom is being picked on in the community tank. The grow 4" grow outs have no problem with her. The original pair of my breeding are mean to her. Now that I think of it I tried to pair her with the original male and he wasn't nice to her in the breeding tank either. So much for Cliff's suggestion of pairing her with him. I may have to do some moving around of Discus to keep the peace. I don't want Al's female to be stressed. She really needs a break. Although there aren't hundreds of fry they always preferred her because she was able to get darker. Now that she's no longer together with her kids they are grazing off dad but also hunting BBS more than they were.

    I've been feeding BBS from day 4 and the kids would snag one occasionally. Today for the first time they started leaving dad in droves to hunt the BBS.

    It was really cool when I fed the babies lunch this afternoon. I put the air tube I sucked up the bbs into slightly away from where they were eating from dad. They followed as I released the BBS farther and farther away from them. Their next food will be Tubifex fines soaked in water.

    Excellent word Liz, you have knowledge and experience. Can you look at my thread/message regarding my young blue diamond pair; the eggs did not hatch after 72 hrs even if they were orange not white??? Thanks

    I saw that thread Richard but I didn't know the answer. You might want to shoot a PM to Cliff. He has way more experience than I have.

    Thanks Fritz. I started the kids on Tubifex fines this afternoon. They are all starting to leave dad as a group as they hunt for food. God this is fun!
