    Default Some pics of my wild Discus

    I've got a few wilds in qt which I recentry had the chance to get hold of here in Dubai. A first for them to be available commercially, so I went a bit overboard and got 35 of them.
    Just wanted to share some pics to get my homestead started.

    "Madeira Heckels", got 10 of those.

    The one in the last pic has a good size scar above his head with some of the dorsal fin missing. He's the only one of those 10 who really stands out. Called him Holger as he reminds me of a German Handballer.

    "Uatuma Green", 6 total. By now I don't think they are from Uatuma, but I'll keep calling them that for now.

    4 Colombian Green, labeled Putumayo. They still need to gain some weight.

    Thank you. Make that 36, picked up a tiny skinny Putumayo green last night. He's living with the Altums for now. The light in that tank is very low so can't seem to get good pictures of him. His shape is a bit off as you can see, but I could not resist, got a good deal on him. He still has some potential to become a decent fish.

    The other 35 are in 5 different tanks right now, so a full group shot won't happen haha.

    Should have been 275, but got a discount because I took the runt a couple days ago.
    Looking good in the QT, relaxed as can be and great appetite for blackworms.

    I decided to trade my Stendkers for a few more wilds ( 1 Tefe green, 1 Beruri blue, 1 Putumayo green and 2 Uatuma blue) to clear some space. So will be down to 3 tanks instead of the planned 4, the 120 will go back to storage for now. The plan is to put the 10 Heckels in the 190, 15 blues in the 220(arriving Thursday) and the then 19 greens into the 325 (eta unknown). Lot of work ahead, but really looking forward. Will document as I go along

    Also pretty sure the "Uatuma " greens are Tefes, there's a few that look very very similar, compare post #3 and the last one in post no 2. What are your thoughts, guys?
