    Default Flora in my tank

    It has been 10 months since I received 16 tiny discus, the size of my thumb from Roguediscus. I started growing them out in a 40g breeder then moved to a 75g in the garage. Finally, they are moved in the house, to a 75g+40g sump to avoid the summer's heat.
    It has been an interesting journey with lots and lots of water changes in the middle of the night and one mistake that almost killed all of them. In the end looking at them now, I am happy with the result. Thanks Roguediscus for giving me such a fine stock to work with.

    What a great group of Fish! Nicely done with the raising of them.
    I have some blue snakes from Steve myself that I am really happy with. Steves a top notch Hobby breeder.

    Impressive fish, they are real beauties. You have done a great job.

    Hopefully mine will get as big as yours have.

    Thanks Daniel,
    My big mistake was not check the aging water barrel temperature before the water change. Almost killed the whole tank because of temperature shock. I resorted to add a lot of hot water from the faucet, declorinator and Epsom salt to save them.
