    Default Japura Green spawn

    Hi All,

    Thought I'd keep you wild buffs updated on more of the F1 stock we'll have available.

    These are my best Japuras from a few months back dropping a KILLER spawn !! The spawn occurred overnight ( that's unusual !!) Once the lights came on in the morning and the female seen me, she started to eat the eggs. I quickly took a few "crappy" pictures and pulled the spawn for artificial raising. No worries though, there still was a good 200+ eggs left. I've included the original file picture of the solid green male and red spotted female.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get great gobs of solid green red spotted fry
    Fish like that might be worth dedicating my few tanks to a new type of spotted discus.

    Hard to say just how they'll turn out, but it's likely that there will be some outstanding individuals. Even relatively plain Japuras are quite beautiful, imo, among the most attractive of all wild discus...

    Thanks Dale for all the good info.
    I think it is all of the above you mention, specially the guy kind of old.
    The last few frys died today all curled up never get to free swimming.
    Sad thing she is on the 7~10 streak, is cleaning the pvc like crazy in prep for new spawn.I change to pvc see if I got better luck.
    will follow your advise.
    Julian.
