About Yourself: I have had many aquariums and many different kinds of fish. As I have tried on new varieties and have experienced their different ways of playing and caring for their brood, curiosity has only become greater. And now it is only Discus!


Overall great. However i think it is too bright compared to the natural discus habitat. The background picture is also irrelevant i think. I would go for a darker background, denser vegetation and some large pieces of driftwood to give the water a brownish coloration. Otherwise, your fish seem in excellent condition. You obviously know what you are doing! fish avatar
Thank you very much morris and qphamdo! Yes, they are awesome fish, I love them! No special feeding. I change water very often and I think that helps a lot to the colors to be wonderful. Maybe the color of the background doing its relation to discus too. The sand is a very fine sand I've purchased in a common petshop store. Good luck with your Discus! fish avatar
Your Discus look AMAZING!!! Wonderfull colours!!. Any special feeding? Started with Discus, myself about 3 months ago, they are awesome fish. Trouble is, its very hard getting hold of decent A-Grade Disus here. Take care. fish avatar
