Now that I know I have a breeding pair I have purchased the recommended size (30″ wide 12″ deep 18″ tall)for discus breeding. This is their new happy home

I can now see what their future stripe pattern will look like along with blue fluorescent coloring in their scales. I am happy to say they are already eating other foods I give them so they are weening off the parents slime coat successfully. I had to remove the dad from the tank he was becoming aggressive.
The discus babies have detached from the driftwood and are now swimming around their parents like satellites as they eat the slime coat from them as food until they get bigger.
Successful fertilization has taken place, I can see their eyes and tails, soon they will start to swim and eat the slime coating off their parents until they get larger.
Hover your mouse and click on the gear click in the top right corner to see full resolution zoom then you can see each egg!
The aquarium is an extension of the painting so the painting does not have a frame.
You can also see my 2 20 gallon tanks in my hallway, they are also freshwater.
I use a UV sterilizer in this aquarium, you can see it all the way in the right back of my tank. I really recommend one for bigger tanks It keeps the water crystal clear, kills parasites and algae, adds flow to tank.
To the top left I have an mag float algae scrubber which I recommend highly as well it changed my life.
