    I think the price is good for a breeding pait of Blue Diamonds.

    BUT, in you aquarium info it seems you are not sure about your water parameters....you need to get that settled...discus need good, clean, stable water.

    This info will bump you out and maybe one of our experts will get with you.

    Depends. That price could swing either way. Really depends on their quality. Even stunted discus can lay eggs and breed successfully. If they arn't stunted and are relatively high quality then yes $400 sounds reasonable. Though typically the classic, common strains will sell for less.

    If you can go back a few days in a row, see if the eggs turn white. $400 is good for a proven pair, but a beginning pair that has never gotten at least to the wiggler/free swimming stage yet is a little steep. I've seen two females pair before...so you really want to try and confirm that its a male and female by seeing if the eggs get fertilized. White eggs = bad eggs. Brown eggs past day one and two = good eggs.

    Do you happen to have any pictures?

    It is a decent price. I would look around to see if anyone has a lower price, BUT make sure to ask for pics of them spawning, and eating, etc...
