    Thanks Jim, I've decided to go with mister on a timer in the Tank, and will just use a large rubbermaid bin outside the tub to let them soak in...It'll just be easier to clean as they foul the water the minute they are in it... In the summer its easy as the pen is outside..

    Thanks! What will really be cool is when I find the male tortoise I need and breed these females...If you think you need patience to grow out a group of discus from egg to adult To breed.Working with tortoises truly puts it into perspective and teaches you Real Patience!

    Al, my gophers breed every year for me and I do not have to mess with raising the young. Kidding aside this is a cool project and just goes to show that meeting the needs of your tortoise is a bit more complicated than throwing them in a tank.
    Your discus are talking to you....are you listening
