Now I understand the love of discus....I haven't seen any that beautiful before....what a display tank that could make.

Some real nice discus there, and some really ugly to in my opinion.

What kind of fish can live with these fish?

Silver Dollars and it's said neons/cardinals/tetra's. These things get big tho......8 inches.......and they don't want to be crowded. Problem with them is the pH. Has to be around 6.5 with temps around 84. Their water must be PERFECT, too.

There are a host of websites out there. RockyMountain is one of my favs. There's another great one in Hawaii that I can't locate at the moment (it's saved on another computer). Check it out if you can find it. I will try to post it in the next day or so.

Discus are gorgeous. IMO the best looking freshwater fish available. They are best kept by people with plenty of spare time, plenty of experience, big tanks, and big wallets. :ezpi_wink1:

I think discus and peacocks are tied as the best looking freshwater fish. The colors are about equal.

That's why you don't buy one. You can only make that up by getting several. With the price of these guys and their arrive alive quarantee, they probably couldn't bite the bullet on too many dead ones.

Wish I had enough points to buy some. (wink)
