Made my way up to Chens discus today, nice bloke and some great stock

They have now got use to the co2 levels and seem to be happy. Obviously they have to colour up alot and i did not have the hallides on,im really happy with them :)

You might have noticed i have no cardinals.. I lost 60 of them ifor a unknown reason, water was perfect, no ich. I did add some from MA and they must have had something and i only have 2 left.. Checkerboards perished too, i will be replacing them with rummies soon and quarentine them.. thats what the fluval is for

Gave the tank a trim yesterday and got rid of some of the balansea, ferns and tenellus. I am almost happy with it, as soon as the swords and the balansea fills in i think it will be 'finished'

They look great James, and they seem to be shoaling very well.

I had a feeling you were going to see Francis, he really does know his discus. ;)

Cheers, they are beautiful fish

No idea, no symptons, in about 48 hours they all died, they were not even off colour

Shame about losing the cardinals, but a big school of rummies will look absolutely fantastic :D

That's very odd, to lose to many in one go, something must have been up, not that I need to tell you that.

Discus are b.e.a.utiful :)

Well, that is pretty! Only thing I'd say is for a tank that size you could double the amount of discus, though that might not be the best for the overall balance. I'd definately get 4 more myself.

Congrats though!!!

Hi all.

Yea there will be soon, recently re planted the lawn..

Have not been around on forums for quite a few months for a number of reasons, but will try and get a nice update of the tank once the lawn is filled in again.

Here is a teaser :)( branch is over 3')
