    @Gordo33 that photo brought back a lot of memories for me. I kept discus for nearly a decade back in the late 80's and early 90's. Miss them very much. This photo makes me want to start again. Great photo.

    Thanks
    I always hand feed them so I knew I could get them to the top of the tank. With a cell phone in my other hand I blindly snapped pictures for a few feedings.

    It's been just over 10 years keeping Discus. I recently went from a 75 gal to a 125 gal. Go for it . Why did you get out of Discus?

    Had a 220 gallon tank and a job transfer took me from Florida to Tennessee. Just didn't work out to try to bring the setup up here. Sold the Aquarium and the fish as part of the house deal. It's not even something I want to think about very often. I had 2 large Wild greens, and 2 mating pairs of Wattley Turquoise in the tank. I had a 110 gallon RO water system set up. It really upset me to have to leave all that behind.

    Freeze dried black worms is their main diet. Also use a granule but only a couple of them will eat them so I also supplement with frozen blood worms which is like candy for us.
