 Hi  suprotim.  
 Good  to  know  that  you  are  getting  discus  eggs.  But  sometimes  it  happens  that,  two  females  pair  up  and  one  of  them  lays  eggs,  This  is  I  think  to  guard  the  eggs.  But  the  eggs  never  hatch  as  you  know.  So  you  have  to  confirm  whether  they  are  male  females  or  both  of  them  are  females.  Other  than  that  water  quality  is  also  important  in  order  to  hatch  discus  eggs.  Add  methylene  blue  after  egg  laying,  sometimes  the  eggs  get  fungus.  Are  they  eating  the  eggs  or  the  eggs  are  getting  fungus?  And  wait,  experts  will  comment.  You  may  call  shiva  sir  too.
 Thanks  
 Prabuddha  Sarkar

Quote:                
My  discus  've  been  laying  eggs  for  almost  4  months  now  ...all  the  time  the  eggs  r  not  hatching.                

 
 Criteria  for  the  Discus  eggs  to  hatch  ,
 
 1)  The  pair  should  be  a  confirm  pair  ,  ie  they  should  be  confirm  male  and  female  .  Sometimes  both  females  lays  eggs  one  after  the  another  .
 2)  Once  female  lays  the  eggs  ,  Male  should  do  his  work  .  he  should  be  a  working  male  .  
 3)  Too  high  or  too  low  the  water  temp  will  not  make  the  eggs  fertile  .  sperms   dies  before  entering  the  eggs  .
 4)  water  should  not  be  too  hard  .  too  hard  means  more  Calcium  and  Magnesium  .  Eggs  outer  shell  will  get  calcified  and  male  sperms  will  not  enter  the  eggs  ,  making  it  infertile  .  eggs  will  turn  out  white  .
 
 
 You  can  try  below  steps  ,
 
 1)  Remove  this  pair  in  smaller  tank  of  size  24x18x18  or  18  x18  x18  .
 2)  Try  few  spawns  with  this  pair  .
 3)  If  eggs  are  again  turning   white  ,  change  the  male  .  
 4)  Once  eggs  are  layed  and  Male  complete  his  work  ,  add  methylene  blue  .
 5)  Stop  feeding  ,  once  the  eggs  are  layed  .
 
 I  think  both  of  these  discus  are  female  ,  try  to  post  close  up  shot  of  these  two  discus  (  which  as  per  you  are  pair  )  
 
 Thanks
