If I see a discus pair doing the happy dance I pull them and give them a place to breed and raise babies. Then back to the bigggg tank they go.

Each strain of stuff I keep are in a large species tank. I.E. German red community are in a 125gal. See a few holding. Get babies out, raise them. Red shoulder blue regal peacocks the same. Discus are in a 300gal and a 150 fully planted. Angels each strain in their own 75 or 90. Fish don't raise fast, we'll most, so yes I keep them for a min of 4 months usually. Some take longer like discus.

Have you bred bamboo shrimp? How much of a pain in the rear is the larvae stage? One of mine keeps having eggs but I haven't bothered attempting and am wondering if it is worth it. I know it is a ton of work so for now I've just left her in the community and let the fish have a snack when they hatch to larvae. Every time she molts she's had eggs within a week. Saw her fanning a new bunch this afternoon

60 fish on the nose! Not counting all of the wrigglers from our guppies and multis lol. That number might be over 100 with those but I can't actually count them all

I have not bred the bamboo shrimp yet. I just picked em up because I liked them.
