I always wanted a Discus, but I knew they were very expensive. But about 5 weeks ago my LFS had a raffle. I bought about 3 raffle tickets, which was about $15, and the winning prize was a Discus.

And they just phoned me this morning, and I won a Discus! I smiled all the way down to the store.

Sorry the tank is a bit cloudy, I just added Seachem Clarity.

Thanks for looking, and if you live around Atlanta be sure to check out Atlantis Aquariums in Marietta. They have the raffles about twice a year.

That is a very nice fish. Will you be getting him / her a friend ?

Discus are less shy if you have some dither fish in with them too like neon, cardinal or rummy nose tetra. :ssmile:

They also tend to like long leaved vallis plants to hide in. :ssmile:

Yeah, right now I only have a whiptail cat, but I'm also planning to get some more cardinals. And next week, I'll try to get a new Discus, if the LFS has any more in.

It's in a 55 gallon, Eddie.

wtg bud, that was a stroke of luck for sure, did the Lfs tell you what
kind of Discus it is? looks like a juvie red leopard but I could be wrong.
It looks nice and healthy anyway, best of luck with it!

Thanks guys, I never thought I would never get to win the Discus, I just wanted to help out the store, I guess I was lucky enough, though.
