How Long Do Discus Breed For?

Written by allan on . Posted in Breeding

I Recently Purchased A Couple Breeding Pairs of Discus. Was Told By A Local Fish Store That, Once The Discus Have Layed And Raised The Babies, They Are Only Productive For 12-18 Months From That Time Then The Batches Drop Off. Is It True? The Older The Pairs Are The Less Eggs They Produce? Or is It Like Other Cichlids Where The Older Bigger And
More Mature The Pairs Get The More Eggs They Produce?

Reply:
What your friend said is quite true.
They can breed roughly about 30 times.
They can lay eggs twice a month.
The older pair will get fewer eggs.

The younger pair will lay lesser eggs.
The more mature pair will lay more eggs.
