    Question Mix Discus Pair

    Hi All,

    I have been raising some discus for a year now, iv got 15, 2in discus and they are around 4.5in or so today. Recently I noticed a Cobalt Blue discus and a Golden yellow discus has paired and started laying eggs.
    I want to breed them however I have a couple of questions.


    1 : Is it a good idea to breed a mixed pair?
    2: Would the babies have a different color or would they follow the parents?


    Looking for guidance on this.

    Thanks,
    Deen.

    Not a good combination. In my experience, the spawn produces muddy discus. Still, it'll take many tries before they're successful. Once they're proven, it's easy to force pair adult discus.
    At my age, everything is irritating.

    Thanks Willie,

    I guess they are a proven pair coz the eggs have hatched and I see fry.

    Any pictures of the free swimming fry? Discus color are determined by their genetic inhertiance, what color were their parent, the color of their grandparents.
