    Default Egg eating

    I have 2 "pairs" of discus- one pair and the other 3 discus that breed together. They all eat their eggs within 12-24h after. I'm not trying to breed them, but I'm wondering if I'm doing something to cause them to eat their eggs? Is this normal behavoir?

    Just my thoughts.
    They are healthy and comfortable enough to spawn, which they want to do of course (good!), but even if you have m/f pairs, they are either too young or don't consider the environment good enough for rearing.
    Yes, it's normal.

    Thanks Steve. Maybe they are too young. I think the environment is pretty great. I'm becoming more of a minimalist. I got rid of a rock and 2 large pieces of driftwood. I'm trying to give them more swimming space.

    They could be too young but some never get it right. There was a reason I named one of mine EESOB, lol...
