    Hello all I just joined. Been keeping my new discus for about a year now. Was allways keeping fish but stopped with discus in 04. Tank broke. More time now and another site sparked my interest again. This time around things seem easier. Maybe I’ve been lucky. Im just a keeper with no interest in breeding. I got 13 in a 125. 6 came from Hans 5 from local stores and 2 from Uncle Sams. Since I started I’ve lost 1 discus a local bought turq. It was 2” and grew to almost 5 than stopped eating hid a bit and was dead. Took about 4-5 day from start to finish. That’s was about 6 months ago and all has been fine since.
    Still just figuring out the layout of the site. I hope to contribute and learn more about our discus here. Thanks for having me and I will put up some pics .7ECE4F2F-CCDA-4090-9019-086B9A4F803A.jpg

    Nice Tom. Your dirty locals are a great example of what you get when crossing a non-PB to a PB. A lot of folks ask what will I get if I cross my blah blah Turk with a blah blah pigeon...tah dah, there you have it folks!
    Thanks for sharing your pics Tom, your tank looks nice mate!

    Yes Tom (coral bandit), heavy peppering is result of a PB crossed to a non PB, if it a dirty PB the peppering is off the charts. Dark angel/ Mercury is an engineered fish with peppering, but the usual result is like what Tom pictured. I actually don't mind them, just not for breeding purposes...I wasn't trying to be mean to him at all

    No offense taken . I like my dirty discus (named by Tom on another forum). Funny I have a Dark AngelD74C09D2-93EF-4F83-B863-1644D3228525.jpg. He was bought from Hans as a silver pb::roll eyes: next is my favorite my not so red snakeskin3DA00C0E-FCAB-443D-B85F-DEAFBDF52C14.jpg. Now I’ve read that a dark background will pepper pb. Is this true? Also any idea why the red went orange? Thanks all.
