Video shows a Blue Turquoise Breeding Pair of Discus in our Shop Tank, with Fry at 9 days and 14 days after hatching.

Watchng these fish breeding is an amazing sight and is worth your time, effort and expense. A breeding pair forms a strong bond and lays eggs on a vertical surface which they diligently clean beforehand. In this video, a Discus Terracotta Breeding Cone is used. Once the eggs are laid, the pair fans their eggs and they hatch a few days later.

The pair will protect and defend the huge clutch of fry, and will allow them to feed off their special body slime coats
