PostSubject: L144 (M) x ABN(F)   Tue Oct 11, 2011 2:44 am

Was leaving for a holiday, so thought I had take out all my adult bristlenoses from my community of discuses tank just in case they got hungry and started going after my discuses. I moved 5 adults into the ABN juv tank at around 4pm on Tues. At around 5.30pm, saw the male L144 and female ABN in a cave. That was pretty fast. These 2 were originally from 2 diff tanks. On Wed, saw a bunch of eggs, that was pretty fast also isnt it? Below is a pict of the 7day old fry. They look more black then yellow.

Oh...so I am going to get all commons. I hv stopped breeding ABNs n hv no intention to breed again. This is really accidental.

Hv a look at some of my discuses' video at youtube, all self-bred. http://www.youtube.com/user/discusy?blend=22&ob=5#p/u/10/qFM9L1S7YHM Will try to upload my other n latest discuses' picts later.

Congratulations to you!

By the way, I do not think that any of your BNs could go after your discus. Next time leave them together.

Bristlenose and discus can sometimes be a bad come especially if the discus are breeding. Breeding dicsus and bristlenose are a no no.

on the otherhand discus are generally too lazy and slow to go after bristlenose fry so the other wya around is generally ok

Oh, my 1st batch of BN eggs were all eaten up by my discuses. So BN breeding in a discus comm tank is no-no.

Hi mmccannon, I hv more than 10pcs of ABNs in each of my 4ft discus tank, between 2.5-4", so I moved some of the bigger ones out, left the smaller ones in the comm tank. I didnt take them all out. Bigger ones do go after my discuses esp when they are not going to be fed for a couple of days.

Dear Leopard,


Now I have learned something new, something I have never experienced when I had discs.

Anyway, for the sake of peace in the tank, it is better to feed your ABNs regularly.
