    Default My first wild discus, Blue Faced Heckels!

    Hi everyone

    Just like to share my very first batch of wild discus.

    Open to all comments good or bad.

    Currently in this tank for 2 months under quarantine before shifting.

    Fingers crossed that image loads properly!

    Jeff

    Wow, they are beautiful! What are you currently feeding? I just bought some wilds, most of which are not too fond of my dry foods.

    You can try tropical discus wild granules. Both my domestics and wilds love these.

    I'll be transferring them to a 250g sump system in about two weeks? Maybe slowly add in some corys and pleco.
    I'll post pictures!

    They started eating pretty quick.
    They eat frozen blood worms, beef heart mix, frozen brine shrimp and frozen mysis shrimp.

    I know with YouTube links that when you remove the "s" from https it loads but I tried that and it doesn't work with your imgur links...

    If I had those excellent fish I would be soooo itchin' to breed them.

    If you want a pretty natural display tank, get Sterbai Corys, and a few Bristlenose. Consider a small group of German Blue Rams if you want a little more action in the tank.
