    I'd like to know discus people as if I ever get past getting ready to get ready, I may actually get a discus tank and would love to live all the pitfalls vicariously rather that kill a bunch of discus on my learning curve.
    I'm in Mission Viejo.

    Ha ha!! That's funny I am thinking about starting to cycle a tank for Discus. I have probably been doing research for about a year and even after that I found so much on this forum that I did not know. Do you happen to know of any fish stores near us that even carry Discus? I have been looking around but haven't found much of anything...
    Long time fish nerd... just getting started with Discus and I am starting to realize how little I know!

    Tong's Tropical Fish in Fountain Valley http://tongstropicalfish.net/ has the most I've seen and I think even The Reef in Anaheim has a few. Also, I think I saw some in DD Fish and Pets in Santa Ana.

    But, I suspect you'd be better off buying from someone on this forum or, if you have the $s, from Kenny. He typically has killer fish for sale.

    Yes, that quality of fish will spoil you for the lesser stuff. Just be glad you haven't discovered Koi.

    Also check out Uncle Sam's Discus in Canoga Park. Their March inventory looks amazing.

    Hey man! I see you post a lot of useful info here, I've been browsing like crazy (input, input!). Followed my own advice and went down to Uncle Sam's and picked up a Blue Turqouise/snakeskin looking cross and a Blue Cobra. They had a St. Patty's day sale and took an extra 25% off! The fish are both 4.5" or so and robust.

    I got those two as well from Uncle Sam's. My Tiger Turquoise's stress bars disappeared, but my Blue Cobra's bars are very prominent. Do you have a picture of yours?

    Same. My blue cobra is the biggest fish in the tank. But he gets the brunt of it all from the other larger ones.
