Discus adopting Angelfish fry Hi intesting thing has happened in the fish room. I have 3ft tanks divided with glass that has been drilled for water to flow through as they are conected to a filter system. I have a pair if Angels that i would normally take their spawn away to hatch out that are next door to 2 Discus that are growing out to breed with. The Angels have spawned and hatched fry that have swam through the divider and have been adopted by the discus who are very happy to be looking after them. There is probably more angel fry with the discus than with the parents. The discus are picking fry up in their mouths and spitting them out with the rest of the fry school, Flicking thier fins to attract fry the and have changed colour to attract fry to them. Very interesting. Anybody had anything like this before. This has been going on for 3 days. Regards Angel
