Yanked the tube after spawning had ceased.
Another batch of Show fish fry:
These shot in June 2014
I have had these for about a year. I brought the parents in from Japan and Auctioned four and Raffled the other four. One of the winners was kind enough to send me these. Yes they have the same parents even though there are four types of discus here.
Fry from the Piwowarski Show Fish and Martha Morris Female
One more pair: Blue Knight Female and Martha Morris Turquoise
Growing well they are!!!
Another Pair Just Formed
Here is the fry from the pair in the video below. They are being raised by their Aunt.
I got a small batch off of these guys. However I had to use a foster mother to do it.
These are the T-Aqua Red Turquoise Offspring in their new home the 150 Cube. They will stay here about another year or until they are ready to spawn.
A couple of very good friends sent me these Heckel Crosses for free. Including shipping!! I am excited as they are ready to spawn.
This is a tank I set up for a good friend of mine’s wife. She now has Discus Fever. All the fish came from Tony of Sunrise Tropicals. I think the song is fitting after this project.
Fry from the large Piwowarski Male and Martha Morris’s Female. These two did a good job last week fostering their first batch from three different pairs.
I have at least two confirmed pairs in this group of six, but maybe only one male! I need to clean up a few tanks to drop them in.
The Second Pair with three different batches of fry. One very small batch on the cone from the show pair.
Second Pair has formed, however they have been egg eaters: Very small batch here which I later returned to the parents along with eight fry which are about three days younger:
More from this nice group of T-Aqua F-1. Many different types here. What type of Discus did Watanabe use in his Red Turquoise Line?
Only twenty eggs on this go. They were not sticking to the pipe!
I pulled a small batch of eggs from these guys hours after this was shot. Fingers Crossed!!!!
Here are some wilds we have had in the past, all but the bright red ones at the very beginning of the video. Those are F-1 from Wantanabe.

Kingdom Come Discus Haven has been on a break for most of 2013. The future is uncertain and as of December 2013 there are no plans for future fish to become available. We do have a few tanks of very nice fish and one day hope to have some nice offspring available. Thanks to all who visit here. I will continue to put up videos from time to time.
