Couples & Couples Formation
It often happens that both wild and VF1 discus form pairs while staying with us. Young fish of 12-14cm we try to abstain from pair formation, as it often slows their growth, but otherwise the fish are allowed to unfold. Breeding pairs are for sale only when we have seen the eggs hatch. You therefore have our guarantee that the couple is fertile. Since the discus is not monogamous, ie. that they do not necessarily adhere to the same partner life long, then we will often also have good conditions for sex determination of the fish - which may be to your advantage. if you are looking for a specific gender for your breeding work.
Despite many years of experience with teams of discus, we are unable to determine the gender of our fish, based solely on their size, appearance or behavior - we have been wrong too many times :-)
