If the fishes were round of the stomach so it can be constipation. When I feed my discus
with dry feed I wet it a moment before. Then continue not feed to swell in their stomachs, and stop up. If the fish is swollen between the feeding, they can have a worms.
Have you seen if the other fishes poops as they should? Poops them? How does the poop look like? Poop should be short and dark. Just to see they are healthy.
often takes long pauses when they have played several times. I have two couples who played several times now (but they ate the eggs) and then they began to fight with each other. They hate each other now, haha! Could also be that one does not feel ready for the game simply. Also had a safe female and male recently where the male eggs when I got home. It is, therefore, two females playing.
The best thing is to have them in an empty aquariums, so you can keep track of pH, temperature, water and cleaning of the aquarium. They also need peace.
Tell us a little more about the other fishes, if they look healthy and how the tank look like. Start by looking at the fish do not want to play if they look healthy.
