Thanks Ciddian. They are checkerboard pigeons and orange koi angelfish.

Check these out, babies eating from their parents sides;






This is dad, snakeskin with his fry;


This is what got me hooked on discus, the care, protection and nurturing the parent provide to their fry. The parents will die for their fry.

Awesome pics The ones of the fry on the parents attracted me to discus many (too many to tell) years ago. I settled for angels as they are much more affordable and I do love them to. Too bad my devils won't parent raise
There is hope one day the discus I have will.

The babies feeding off of the parents is what got me hooked too. I remember the first spawn, I sat up and watched ALL NIGHT LONG as the parents found their fry flying around the tank and helped them attach. Amazing! The parents weren't thrilled with me glaring at them all night, but what the heck!

Let me know when those babies are ready
