    Thank you Patty for your great encouragement

    I can bring out a chair and sit in front of the fish tank for hour and hour just watching them.

    I have a silly thought and please don't laugh. Every time when I feed them and seeing them eating like crazy, I feel hungry as well. Is it normally?

    2 weeks into the 120 gal new home. All 14 4 months old discus settle in nicely. I did notice the grow rate slow down a little once it past the 4 inches range. However they are getting thicker and the color on them are getting more colourful every day. I guess they are telling me they are happy with their new home. Just give me more to eat and feed me more fresh water.....

    No problem. I think that is easy to do.

    I have a growing interest in discus genetics which has been sparked by seeing some offspring that look nothing like their parents...you have some different looking color types & patterns in your group...are these discus all from the same parent pair?

    Hi Daniel,

    I have 3 different kinds of discus in this group of 14 discus. They are red valentine, yellow white and red cover. However they are still very young (4 months old), I don't think the color hasn't developed yet.

    My discus behave very well during the water change every evening. They all cuddle up together I bet they are saying hurry up and pump in more fresh water

    11 months later, they are turning into beautiful discus. The smallest one is over 6.5 inches.

    Thank you Patty It is very rewarding seeing the results and all the hard working are totally worth it.

    Actually keeping discus is not that difficult at all as long as we gave them lots of fresh water (~40,000 gal of fresh water in 11 months) and lots of healthy food.
