 Thanks  Shiva.
 
 No  DAPHNIA  to  them.
 
 Prasanna,
 
 The  spawning  and  fry  gowned  on  normal  municipal  aged  water.  Here  at  Pune  we  get  pH  at  7.00  to  7.20.
 Growing  the  fry’s  is  a  very  hectic  job  and  needs  more  care.  Right  now  I  am  feeding  them  4  times  BS  and  2  times  Goat  heart  +  Spurilina  mix  with  daily  2  time  WC.  Now  they  are  around  50  paise  coin  size.
 
 Cheers,

 After  feeding  GHM  there  growth  is  good  but  it  has  a  negative  reaction  too…  lost  3  babies  within  last  2  days.  Sad   
 
 Had  a  chat  with  Shiva  and  he  has  suggested  few  points  to  overcome  with  this  issue.
   
 As  per  my  judgment  most  of  the  babies  are  LSS  and  SS  as  I  can  see  9  and  14  stress  bars  on  them.
 
 Rahul,  Will  post  few  snaps  soon.  
 
 Cheers,

 Kiran  ,
 
 Your  discus  babies  are  growing  well.  Do  you  find  the  below  in  this  lot  ?.
   
 1)  Few  fries  which  are  smaller  in  size  with  compare  to  others.
 2)  Some  of  the  fries  have  clamped  fins.
 3)  Some  of  the  fries  looks  like  developed  split  /  cut  fins.
 4)  Some  looks  week.
   
 
 You  need  to  seperate  them  in  bigger  tank  and  give  bigger  water  volume  ,  or  else  they  may  not  grow  well  at  even  size  .

 Yes  Shiva,  I  observed  few  points.
 
 1. Few  babies  are  small  and  weak,  Till  today  the  mortality  is  4  after  free  swimming,  most  of  them  are  clamped  fins  and  small.
 2. No  split  or  cut  fins.
 3. Yes,  some  are  weak.
 
 Hey,  In  the  body  deformation  one  which  we  have  is  a  HEART  SHAPE.  No  tail  but  growing  well.
 
 When  can  I  start  feeding  them  a  dry  food  like  crushed  tetra  bits  and  discus  bio  gold?
 
 Can  I  add  a  sponge  filter  to  the  raring  tank?
 
 For  bigger  tank,  how  about  36x18x18  inches?
 
 Regards,

   3.  Yes,   some   are   weak.                  

 
 
 Kiran  ,  when  you  breed  discus  ,  all  the  above  problems  come  your  way  and  you  have  to  face  them  .  some  times  the  entire  spawn  get  wiped  out  ,  but  you  should  not  get  disturbed  instead  try  to  find  out  out  what's  the  problem  .  so  take  below  care  .
 
 1)  Provide  them  with  bigger  tank  .
 2)  Ensure  that  you  are  feeding  as  much  as  they  are  consuming  within  few  minutes  .Don't  over  feed  them  .  
 3)  There  should  not  be  any  left  over  of  lBS  or  GHM  .  left  over  feed  pollutes  the  water  fast  .
 4)  Fries  which  are  not  eating  well  /not  active  ,  try  to  grow   them  in  separate  tank  .
 5)  Put  Sponge  filter  in  the  tank  immediately  .
 6)  Go  for  48  x18  x18  tank  for  raising  them  and  separate  them  time  to  time  .

 Guys,
 
 Due  to  the  busy  schedule  at  office  work  and  other  important  activities,  yesterday  I  have  sold  all  the  fry’s  to  Sanjay  for  raising.  The  count  was  134  and  all  are  about  more  than  50  paise  coin  size.  I  had  the  photos  of  fry’s  before  netting  and  will  post  soon.   Sanjay  will  keep  half  a  dozen  good  quality  juvenile  from  this  spawn  for  me  ,  if  all  goes  okay.
 
 Special  thanks  to  Shiva,  Sanjay  and  Yogi  for  giving  advice  whenever  needed.  Breading  the  discus  and  raising  them  from  wigglers  to  50  paisa  coin  is  an  absolute  fun.  Apart  from  this,  its  needs  hard  work  and  dedication.  Kudos  to  all  the  discus  hobbyist  who  have  breaded  their  own  discus’s!!!
 
 Now  I  had  a  confidence  and  will  start  discus  breeding  in  future,  if  time  permits.
 
 Cheers,

 Guys,
 
 Was  on  vacation  for  last  week,  hence  unable  to  load  the  snaps.
 
 Below  snaps  are  captured  before  packing  (Packing  is  a  very  hectic  job).   Crying or Very sad  
 
 Had  a  call  with  Sanjay  and  all  the  fry’s  are  doing  well  except  2  mortalities,  Interestingly  my  discus  babies  growth  is  superior  than  his  discus  spawn.   Innocent  
 
 Will  try  to  breed  Blue  Turq  female  X   Blue  SS  male  in  coming  time.
 
 Cheers,
