They look so calm up until FDBW lol... love the video. I will have to update mines in a month or two so you can see how big they are getting too. They are eating machine and happy to say they are showing signs of growth already. Must be the breeder's care because your fish are never shy and eats anything you give at them. Anyway keep the updates coming.

Thanks Josie for taking the time to put this vid out.
I do the exam same but becomes a task wiping down my 30" tall tank. The rest are 24 and 18 iches deep which are somewhat easier.
I like your syphon hose...is it 1.5" dia?
As usual, those discus look great.

you know I have tried several but I don't really like using a pump for cleaning unless its the sump. I do it the old way with the self syphon and a garbage can it seems to get cleaner that way....Josie
I cant remember the name of the pump that I have but its the only one that I have found that it self priming, I went to home depot to get it.............Josie

With a fine SS and a blue diamond, you should get some pretty blue sharp scorpes. Will be one of a kind.

What's the difference in 9 bar and 12 bar? Are they all going to be Scorpion or just some?

I think we are going to have some blue diamonds in the mix which is cool with me.... You should see the PE spawn you would think I put one fry in from all my discus thats a mixed up group it will be amazing to see what we get.....Josie

Interesting... Looking forward to see these bad boys grow up... Also, cannot wait for your PE spawn... Definitely getting a few of those to grow out... I really enjoy growing out Juvie. The end result is so rewarding if of course things goes well :)

I will doing the same with mines this weekend. They have out grown the 29gal. I cannot wait to see how big they have gotten. My biggest is around 4-4.5" from noise to end of tail. Your's I'm betting is average between 4.5-5".
