 If  it  hasn't  paired  up  with  a  pigeon  blood  based  fish  you  should  still  get  nice  fry  in  my  opinion.

 Mixed  pairs  are  very  common  and  honestly  look  better  than  either  of  the  parents

 The  Discus  feed  the  fry  by  producing  a  nutritous  slime  on  their  bodies.  They  attract  the  young  by  darkening  their  colors.  Apparently  (I  have  read)  that  pigeon  bloods  are  unable  to  darken  their  skin  tones  -  and  thus  are  unable  to  attract  the  fry  to  feed.
 
 Gurus,  pls  correct  me  if  I  am  wrong  -  I  am  (as  of  yet)  barely  able  to  distinguish  between  A  Oerter's  Discus  and  the  one  that  lives  in  the  Amazon.

 hi  Arup,
 The  Pigeon  Bloods  have  a  lot  of  peppering(black  tiny  spots)  on  the  body..
 This  peppering  is  more  prominent  when  they  are  breeding  so  attracting  the  fry  is  not  a  prob  if  the  parents  are  good  in  taking  care  of  the  fry..
 
 Secondly  when  other  genos  like  snow  whites  or  Albinos  there  is  a  problem  as  they  cannot  darken  their  tones  in  that  case  u  paint  the  sides  of  the  tank  in  a  lighter  colour  like  sky  blue..
 
 Bye..
