Does letting discus spawn young stunt their growth?

It will interrupt growth before they reach their possible full size without spawning but I would not consider this stunting growth. Over a longer period of time they will reach full size if the pair is rested every 5 spawns if "parent raising" fry... and every 7 - 9 if YOU raise the fry after hatchout ( artificial rearing of fry ). Rest = no spawning, lots of high quality foods and keeping the fish from spawning until they "put back body mass".
I'm myself, there are already enough others.
