to be honest i just let them get on with it . yeah i used 80% RO - 20% treated tap water.

did water changs every other day. once they had fry i would move them after about 10-14 days and did 3 feedings a day and daily 60% water changes .

yeah I'm gunna start them in RO just to match the water they are coming from then over couple months going to acclimate them into hard water but that won't be happening until the eggs are fertile.

Nice filtration system, I see you have tiles on the bottom of the tank and I remember in an aquarium store all the discus tanks they had tiles on the bottom, does anyone know why is that ? ( clay tiles )

yeah sounds ok . im no expert when it comes to discus but i think in harder water as many eggs wont get fertilised. thats why people use RO water as its alot softer and its easier for the sperm to fertilise the eggs and decreases in harder water . thats what ive read and been told by breeders anyways . i applied this to breeding angel;fish and i had alot higher hatch rate when i used ro water instead of treated tap water .
