Eaten Eggs

Written by allan on . Posted in Breeding

I am trying to get my discus pair to spawn. Whenever the female lays eggs though, the male follows right behind her eating the eggs as they come out. Some never even make onto the slate. Do you have a remedy that will encourage the male to fertilize them instead of eating them?

Reply:
It is really a big headache to teach the male to fertilize the eggs.
By instinct they know what to do.
If she does not do it, it must be a reason.
Could be she is a female.
Could be she is not mature.
