Discus Variety Identification. & Spawning!

Post  williemcd on Mon Feb 11, 2013 3:26 pm

Well, I've got 7 big Discus in a 120G tank. Two of them are a Cobalt pair that have spawned and reared fry before I got them and another big female as part of a threesome! The 3rd wheel is orange with white through it. Research has told me its: a Snakeskin, A Mosaic, and assorted other descriptions.
Well, the orange one is trying to spawn but the male Cobalt is butting her or eating the eggs as she's depositing them!.. The female cobalt is patiently watching with HER tube out... I guess I need to find a mate for the orange one!... What is your guess as to it's variety?

Snake skins have much smaller patterning. She is a pigeon blood but there are so many names for the color patchiness that I have given up keeping track.

I have had that same issue, threesomes rarely work out, someone gets jealous and eats the eggs!
