    Well, I got the tank ready, got the camera on the phone and tape measure ready, I netted him and the phone rang... I measured him about 6 weeks ago and he was a little over 7".

    I always hate measuring. I rarely position it right anyway as anyone can tell by the measurements earlier in this post.

    It was a spammer anyway, lol...

    Those wondering what effect darker backgrounds have on certain discus can see it here. These guys have been dark to totally black from the day I put them in their new tank with the imitation rock background and black sides. The bottom is the same as other tanks. And the two I put in with the Curipera's were back to normal color immediately after being moved. Interesting...

    I like the looks of the new background and sides but I like the looks of the discus with the blue background. I'll either change this tank to blue or maybe swap tanks with the tangerines. The problem is I need help because this tank was made with 1/2" thick glass and weighs a ton. One issue I have with the new tank is the elcheapo hood and led lights that came with it. They are so bright white that I have to scrub algae off every square inch daily.
