Sunday Fishroom Post 8.11.19

Posted by Gary Hull on

Well, it looks like we have 2 established pair of Clown Angelfish in the 55 grow out tank. One pair has already laid eggs and I was able to save a dozen or so fry. I will likely move each pair to their own breeding tank today and move some new angels to the 55 grow out tank. At this point, not sure what to move. Was maybe thinking some of the discus fry since they are at a quarter size now. The featured image for this blog post is one from a week ago of the Red Melon Discus...

It has been a few weeks since my last post so I will do my best to get you caught up on what has been going on. First the good news. One of our Red Melon Discus pair has finally raised a dozen or so young to dime size. This is the same pair that would lay every 10 days or so but then eat the babies and lay new eggs on the breeding cone. After this batch of fry were free swimming, I removed the breeding cone and they seem to have temporarily lost the urge to lay eggs....

Happy Fathers Day to all dads out there. It's been a few weeks since my last post and I'm posting this on Saturday rather than Sunday due to my hectic schedule for Sunday. (The majority of which will involve getting boxes and labels ready for shipping fish on Monday)  I have been getting a lot of questions regarding the High Coverage Koi and when they will be available again. The 3 pairs that we have breeding are currently producing small batches of fry. I will have a limited amount available in July but will have to see how egg laying...

Happy Mothers Day to all the fish moms out there! Its been a busy couple of weeks since my last post to say the least. We have reached max capacity as far as aquariums go and have to manage our resources effectively to avoid overstocking issues. This is a good thing I suppose since the fish are breeding consistently and providing a regular flow of young to raise.  Our discus are still proving a challenge with several pair eating eggs. I have decided to try to artificially raise the fry. Basically, there are two methods that seem to work. Once...

Last week we received our discus pairs with no issues. All of the pairs acclimated nicely and we even had one pair lay eggs. Unfortunately, after 2 days they ate them all. This happens quite a bit and I have found that most of my other pair of discus eat the eggs or wigglers the first 3 or 4 times they lay eggs. After that, they usually get the hang of it and start raising babies. I have posted a picture of the female blue diamond discus below. She did a great job at laying and fanning eggs. Not sure...
