    Had to share this. My dicusses finally laid eggs (four years later). :dft010:

    It is in a comunity tank with 50 other fish, so don't exspect the eggs to survice into discushood, but nice to see that I could create a enviroment for them where they feel OK to lay eggs.

    PS. How do I post pics here?

    Hi Len, having bred discus, i know the feeling when they lay eggs. If you want to have any chance at raising you will have to get them into a tank of their own.

    Yip, I have seen these in the breeding tanks, or at least ones with the same markings.

    Here is the other I now have:

    They ate this set of eggs (or someone else did), laid another set, but that disappeared as well. :(
