Discus

So after months of my discus laying eggs and eating them I come home today and find not discus eggs but discus fry i believe that's the proper term for baby discus. This is the first time I have ever had any of my fish reproduce. I am at a complete loss as to how to take care of them. I'm super excited and very scared. If anybody has any knowledge as to how to take care of them please helpClick image for larger version

The fry will feed on the slime produced by the parents. They will graze on the parents sides When they get large enough, you can start them on freshly hatched brine shrimp.

If they're in a community tank, I would move the fry to another tank after they start eating on their own. This is usually about 2-3 weeks. Bill is correct with baby brine shrimp. Usually you'll see a pink belly develop in the fry indicating it's about time for a move.

Before I forget, CONGRATS !!!!

Here's an excellent resource for all your Discus needs. http://forum.simplydiscus.com/
