    Hi All

    We've had our Discus tank up and running for about 12 weeks and we love it. We have six Discus and 4 angels in a 75 gallon. Everyone is doing great. I do 40% water changes every two or three days. Water perimeters are perfect, but WOW, these are some dirty fish.

    Anyway, I will be reading for a while and learning as mush as I can from all of you.

    Rob

    Welcome Rob! Yes, discus are super dirty. I'm not sure what you are currently feeding them but once you get them on beef heart, it will get even messier.

    Welcome Rob,
    This is where I learned everything I know and I’m still learning. Look forward to hearing about you tank and your discus. we have similar taste in fish as I have angels too.
    Mine love to poop right after a water change. They think it’s hilarious!
    What kind of discus and angels do you have?
    Patty
    If the discus are happy, Iím happy

    Hi and greetings from me too. Real pleasure to welcome another fishkeeper to this fold. And yes photo's are always appreciatd, not because anyone is likely to judge (unless you request it) but because we are also a curious bunch.
