It seems like a hit and miss thing with the suction cup fish? I've heard some swear against it while others don't seem to notice.86 ssinit said:
They look stunning! Definitely something I need to consider as part of a cleanup crew at discus temps. I'm relying on Amanos at the moment because they're bomb proof.jmaldo said:Have not noticed it, when I added them the Discus of course were inquisitive and tried to check them out. Just too fast for them. I was hesitant to add them since 84' is at the upper limit and they zoom around like torpedoes with jet packs.
They went right to work on the BBA, algae and biofilm "Great" cleaners. I have kept them before when I first started (see pic) and they grew into fat cigars.

Meant to check the eggs earlier, but... Just checked and you are right. Got some fungus. Decided to remove and see what happens. I'll be ready with your recommendation for the next spawn.
Edit: Just checked less than an 1/2 hour, they ate the eggs.
On to the next spawn.
Learning all the Time.
Good Luck!nikm128 said:
With my pair it's just the male that eats the eggs. He used to eat them as they were laid but in the latest spawn the female seemed to attack him when he went in head first for a snack instead of vent first to fertilize. She actually looked quite sad the next day when he had eaten them all.jmaldo said:Just "Chillin" here with the "Blues" and not just fish.
Since the pair ate their eggs, just shy of wigglers.
Watching them do the mating ritual, swimming the tank, matching each others moves, a little swapping of tail smacks. And also, the quivering of their dorsal fins. Really, a sight to see.
And here they are
