Careful if too many lay eggs at the same time you might end up with discus wars.
BRUH! MY WHITE DISCUS IS LAYING EGGS!!!

The Proven Pair has denied it and has eaten all the eggs...
Yeah I don’t really understand. Both have only layed once.Ok so you’ve had 2 different pairs lay eggs already? If so there telling you something. Have either set layed eggs more than once?
Well for one thing, you're doing something right since they are healthy / thriving and comfortable enough to spawn for you. Still learning myself, so no real help, other than what has been mentioned. But you might want to give them a breeding cone to use instead of the glass. It's a shame coralbandit no longer participates here, he has had "Great" early success. Might just be that Magical Spring Water he has in NY? He did mention he responds to PM's.
Please share any suggestions he has.
Learning all the Time.
Nope, this light just keeps going off randomly, it is probably because I press too fast but still...power outage ?
Light works again!
Eggs are all gone again, I cannot wait until the 3rd try. There seemed to be a lot more tanish eggs on day three compared to last day three where all of them were eaten or white.
Ok thanks! I have to order online though. I really plan to get Kuhli loaches and more Rummynose which don’t help my case. Are Golden Nugget Plecos fine, though I do like SAE and will most likely get one.Only concern i have is that his tank is pretty small... Mine loves to dart here and there and everywhere.... His tank isn't tiny but it does have a fair number of critters. I suppose when it gets larger if it is problematic he can always 'return' it to the shop though it might take a few weeks to catch

Thanks!This sounds like a nice tank.
Yeah I’m not sure how bad it would be with Kuhli Loaches, I’m probably going to be avoiding Corydoras because all my Corydoras are so skittish. Also is starlight or blue phantom Pleco any better. I know there is bristolenose but I’m just looking at my options.PlanetCatfish.com - Baryancistrus xanthellus • Loricariidae • Cat-eLog
Larger than bn pleco by 40%; hostile to bottom dwellers (have corys?); and love vegie matters.
In all honesty i would think it would be too large for you tank - again it could work but your tank is not exactly large...
I got a UV Steralizer, I’ve got one that the discus have been laying eggs on and there is one on my filter. I think the huge problem is that one side is next to the window. One side has a bit of algae and the other has none. I’ve been using the vivagrow 24/7 and the weak light in the back used for extra light and if the other light goes out.Plecos really don’t eat to much algae. An SAE may work but to really get it to work you’d need to starve it first. And it being a discus tank that ain’t goin* to work. Plus they get big. Ottos will work but may also go after the discus slime coat. Nerite snails will help. But I think you may want to get a uv steralizer. May need to do less light time too. What type of lights are you using?
Put a towel over the tank on the sun side. See if that stop the algae. It’s real hard to go against the sun.
Water is clear but I have trouble with green algae and hair algae. What fish can I get that will somewhat deal with this
Thing with SAE is as that get older they eat less algae. They will eat whatever you are feeding your fish first before algae.
Usually, 3-5 hours between each but feeding 2 and 3 are a bit closer together. I am feeding 2 cubes of each food.How long in between feedings and how much are you feeding.
Not in all at once. I usually only do one cube of bloodworms, usually I use two cubes of black worms for the 2nd feeding and then one for the third.Way to much. Hope your joking. If not do you put it all in at once?
