 Hello  to  all  the  Senior  Members,
 I  need  some  advice  on  the  alternative  food  for  newborn  Discus  Fry  -  before  which  I'll  quickly  gve  a  brief  idea  of  the  scenario:
 Since  my  discus  pairs  were  eating  the  eggs  earlier  (had  mentioned  the  same  in  one  of  my  earlier  post's)  and  this  seemed  unending...Sad(
 Hence,  this  time,  I  worked  another  option  -  when  the  parents  started  eating  the  eggs  (fortunately  I  was  around  at  that  time),  I  introduced  an  acrylic  shield.  In  about  4-5  hrs,  after  that,  the  eggs  hatched.
 Then  I  let  them  be  in  the  tank  for  around  a  day  and  then  sucked  them  into  a  small  container  till  they  were  free  swimming  -  2  days  time  span....
 EVERYTHING  WAS  FINE  TILL  THEN,
 In  the  meanwhile,  I  purchased  SK  Brand  Artemia  Cysts  and  tried  hatching  the  same.  To  my  utter  despair,  none  of  them  hatched  (all  proper  precautions  taken,  like  adding  salt,  aeration,  light,etc).  I  was  told  that  the  container  should've  been  stored  in  the  fridge  all  along  -  but  when  the  dealer  gave  it  to  me,  it  was  from  the  shelf.  No  cooling.  When  checked  with  him,  he  said  -  we  give  it  in  this  manner  only.
 Now,  the  questions:
 1  -  Do  we  need  to  buy  cold  stored  Artemia?  If  yes,  where  can  we  get  the  same  in  Pune?(whichever  dealers,  I  checked,  all  of  them  have  put  the  same  on  the  shelf  for  display  and  not  in  the  fridge)
 2  -  If  the  same  was  not  freezed  earlier,  will  the  later  freezing  help  (which  I  doubt)?
 3  -  What  can  be  the  alternative  for  Artemia  -  as  I'm  fearing  that  if  i  introduce  the  same  to  the  parents,again,  they  may  eat  the  fry.
 As  on  date,  all  the  hatched  fry  batch  has  died  -  there  were  around  70-80  of  them,  which  I  had  pulled  out.
 
 Also  I  would  request  the  experienced  members  to  enlighten  on  the  process  of  artificial  breeding,  after  the  eggs  hatch
 
 Thanking  you  in  anticipation
 warm  regards...rajesh

 @bobbypune  hey  mate  i  have  been  using  the  same  brand  the  SK  company  eggs  and  have  had  success  hatching  them  after  loads  of  try  and  since  then  i  have  always  hatched  the  eggs  in  around  90%  from  where  did  u  buy  those  eggs  and  though  i  never  stored  them  in  frigde  
 so  the  conclusion  is  SK  BBS  works  gr8  now  for  me  so  can  they  for  u  
 and   the  alternative  is  hikari  first  bites  though  the  won't  help  in  fast  growth  of  the  fry

 Hi  rajesh,
 I  would  encourage  you  to  let  the  pair  carry  the  fries  eventhough  they  might  have  eaten  them  a  few  times.  It  will  save  you  alot  of  hassle  and  beauty  of  parents  and  fries  moving  together  will  be  much  appreciated.  
 I  can  see  that  you  are  trying  to  artifically  raise  them.  Brineshrimp  is  too  big  for  them,  especially  2  day  old  fries..  Boiled  Egg  yolk  fed  in  tiny  bits  will  do  the  trick  though  I  have  never  tried  them  as  i  use  foster  pairs  when  i  encounter  difficult  pairs.  But  artifical  raising  is  another  art  which  experts  can  share  here.  Smile

 Hi  Rajesh,
 
 At  what  temperature  had  u  kept  your  hatching  container?  this  is  winter  time..  cool  water  will  fail  the  hatching.  The  light  is  for  increasing  the  temperature  only.  So  if  your  lights  are  CFL  or  PLs  it  wont  work.  Suggestion  is  to  use  normal  tungsten  filament  bulbs..
