Artificially Raising Discus Fish Fry

This video shows how we artificially raise our discus fry. We almost always let our discus breeding pairs raise their fry. But sometimes you are forced to raise the discus fry artificially because the discus breeding pairs are bad parents. The bad discus breeders will constantly eat their eggs, wrigglers or young, free swimming discus fry. So the only way to get a brood of discus fry, from these bad parents, is to artificially raise them. Artificially raising discus is a lot of time consuming work. They are fed an egg paste every 5 hours for at least 3 days. The water in the bowl is changed after they have eaten for an hour. Usually after 3 days, you can stop feeding the egg paste and start feeding the discus fry live baby brine shrimp.
