Wigglers!

 

Jackie and Mr. Perfect are our only paired off discus. They have spawned on quite a few occasions, but the eggs have never survived for more than a day or two. However, this time the eggs hatched and we have wigglers!

 

Discus With Wigglers

 

I feel incredibly lucky to have witnessed what is the miracle of life continuing itself. Unfortunately, we have neither the means nor the desire to raise fry…so we’re hoping that they get eaten. It sounds cruel, but it’s nature’s way, I guess. I’m not sure what we’re going to do if they actually survive!
