Came home to my discus laying eggs :) Hoping for the best... Frank, you talked about a anti-fungal?
We’ve used 3% over-the-counter Hydrogen Peroxide with Angelfish eggs. Never squirt directly on the eggs. Just in the tank itself. I think we did… 1 ml / 1 gal. Discus are touchy though. The H2O2 might be bad for their slime-coat. Methylene Blue is commonly used, but I’m not as familiar with it’s affects on Discus.
I have not had discus but with angels I move the eggs and treat the eggs in a separate tank and leave them there. I have not thought about just dipping them in antifungal and putting them back with the parents. I guess that could/should work. You might dip them until the eggs get a bit of a blue tinge. But usually when you leave the eggs with the parents, they tend the eggs and you really do not need to add antifungal. It is only when you remove th eggs that you need to use an antifungal.
Yes, but it stains everything so it is best to treat with methylene blue in a separate tank. Move the eggs to do so. If you have a spawning cone, the discus will lay their eggs on it and that makes moving the eggs easy.
