Zac Posted November 4, 2021 Share Posted November 4, 2021 I’m looking to attempt to breed some discus. The only thing I’ve ever bred before was shrimp haha. And you may ask…why breed one of the more challenging fish for a first? Well, I’m mainly looking to keep them and set up breeding conditions and if they breed then great! I’m probably going to keep around 10 in a 75 gallon with maybe a Pleco just for some cleanup duty. So anyways, I have a few questions: -Where should I buy my discus? -How many males per female? I was thinking 2 males and 8 females. -Do I need to introduce them all at the same time? Will it overload a cycled tank if I do? -Do discus need plants or flat surfaces for eggs? (I think it’s flat surfaces) -Do I need to remove the fish or eggs once they are laid? -Can I raise the fry in the same tank? Will I need to move them into a different tank before I offload them to a store? -What are some recommended fry foods other than live baby brine? -What size should I grow them to before I give them or sell them to a pet store? Those are all the questions I could think of. If anyone else has other important info let me know! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
