    Default Hatching timeline

    Timeline can vary by temperature and maybe other factors.

    Here's my last spawn - 29 gallon tank - GH 6 - pH 7.6 - temp 82F

    Day 1, Eggs laid laid, fertilized ones turn dark about 24+ hours later - hatched about 55 hours later

    Day 3, Wrigglers, (Mom removed - leaving for new home)

    Day 5, Freeswimming (counted as day born)

    Day 12, Eating BBS (one week old)

    Day 18, Picking at CBW (nearly 2 weeks old)

    Day 23, still w/dad eating BBS, CBW

    Day 25, eating CBW (nearly 3 weeks old)

    Day 26, moved dad (3 weeks old)

    Day 32, moved babies to 55 gallon (4 weeks old)

    You guys should all have little "log books" to keep track of discus information. Then next time you can answer the questions

    Hi Shamsoo:
    No offense taken. I thought it was a funny comment. I do keep a log and find it helpful

    Hi Gnome:
    I have posted pictures in this section showing my babies at various ages. Look in middle to last part of December and August for pictures of fry. Your sound very small :-\

    Carol.....i love the timeline, big help.
    Did you try feeding any crushed flakes around the time you introduced CBW??? And the CBW you fed, did you cut them up a little bit to make them smaller for the fry?? One last question.....on what day did you stop feeding BBS??
    Thanks

    Hi Tyler:
    I quit the bbs at 20 days when the fry were able to eat whole cbw. I never chop up cbw - they are always fed whole and live. When less than 3 weeks, the discus babies bite off pieces. When the parents eat flakes or tetra bits little crushed bits are leftover - I don't add extra.
