Meal Time for My Parrot Fish

image
I have three parrot fish for more than a year and they are with gourami, silver dollar, and rainbow shark. These fishes don’t fight with others other than their own specie so they really get along well.

Feeding them is fun too as the parrot fish would jump as soon as the food pellets hit the water while the smaller fishes wait for these pellets to sink. I give them two kinds of food, one is bigger for parrot fish and a smaller one for gourami and silver dollar, though parrot fish also eat them.

It’s fun watching them eat and I always try to take pictures of them but they move so fast that the snaps are usually blurry but I got some lucky shots.

Finally, a Discus Pair Breeding!

Recently, there has been an exciting event in my discus aquarium. Why do you think these guys are looking on the other side of the aquarium?

Well, as I’ve said, a recent event made move these discus to the other side where red devil fish used to stay and unfortunately, the red devil fish has to move to my extra smaller tank. I can’t believe that after months of having discus fishes, I finally got a pair!

It is an odd pair, a red-spider discus and a red melon discus, but I am just happy to finally confirm that I have a discus pair. I was ecstatic to find eggs sticking on the wall of the tank. I am not sure if they will be hatched considering that they are not in a proper breeding cone but still I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Below is a parent which is taking care of the eggs.
