Hi all,
I spent the weekend with the wife's family in Baltimore and what else is there to do but stop at Han's on the way home. I got two new Silver Pigeons (Because he now sells them at 2.5"!!!!) OMG they are tiny! I'll post updates as they grow out.8755187552

This hasn't necessarily been a proven fact, but many have observed that when mixing discus sizes, the smaller ones of the group will suffer for it due to not being able to compete. I'm not saying your setup won't work, but keen an eye out.

Thanks Ricardo!
I'll definitely watch out for that. Maybe I'll sell off the big ones! ;), (JK)

They're swimming with the bigguns and seem to be getting their share of food. Mixing Large with small is generally not recommended but if your little guys stay as happy as they are right now, I think you will be fine. Just keep a close eye on their attitude and eating habits.

A little update. They're doing great! (Lets not talk about the others, they're doing fine, but see my other threads if you're interested).

So it been about 3 months in my care and they must be about 6 months old. They are unofficially 4" TL, measurement from outside of the glass so most likely its less. I love how they have completely different patterns and may both be full white.
