    Default changes in diet

    Hi all. Well, not much change in size, but i did notice they r not eating as much as before. When i put the food in they all eat, but not finishing it all. I must say i haven't been doing daily w/c's, that could be the reasone, but also i was having heater problems. The tank would get pretty warm so I had to remove one heater. Before i couldn't keep the water hot enough. If they rn't eating enough, they won't grow to the size i want them too. I will start doing more w/c's to see if that helps. I no something isn't right because i had 3 baby bn's in there and they r gone. I noticed it a few wks ago. The water parms r all good and now the temp is between 84-84.5. Hopefully with more w/c's they will do better. I will keep u updated on this. Any comments r welcome.
    Oh, i forgot to say i don't feed until i get home which i start out with tetra bits, then some brine shrimp, and then some fbw's. I cut out the cbw's since they r expensive and i ran out of b/h so this is there diet.

    Eileen,
    Just remember as the discus gets bigger they have the tendency of not eating as much and this is completely normal so I wouldn't worry about it.
