    Update: all of the fertilized eggs are now wrigglers! Will monitor them now to see if the parents will eat them! IMG_20180609_054942.jpg

    Thanks. Haha they will not be for sale.I may however be interested in swapping/ selling one of my other adults for another strain. Also blue turq, but looks more like a wild discus

    They doing well this far. No disappearing acts overnight. Parents are looking after them quite well. IMG_20180610_111212.jpg

    Update: free swimmers are becoming less (which is where i lost all of them with my last Batch).

    This morning i removed the left over swimmers (about 50) and placed them in a smaller tank with the father only. The breeding tank might have been too big for them, even though i dropped the water level.

    Dad doing well on his own thus far. Mom is abit upset with me for removing her partner and their fry, which is understandable I guess. His not eating the fry, and only about 5 or so have died (natural selection I assume). IMG_20180612_150314.jpgnotice the 2 day old swimmers on the membrane of the dad
