    BNP's are usually ok as discus tank-mates - any other Plecos are considered a no-no, for the reason Judi has given.

    I strongly suggest you first do a lot of homework on caring for discus, to ensure you're successful at keeping these expensive fish, particularly when doing so in a well-planted set-up.

    Well, you may be right - Most say it's between the Red Sox and the Jays - a coin toss.

    I second what Rocksor has said. He's quite correct.
    pH of 8.0 is just fine for discus, (unless you want to breed Them) so long as it's fairly steady in your tank. Don't mess with it - no need to.

    We're just waiting to see the finished product, when perhaps we can help tweak it a bit.

    That's good advice from Cliff.

    To add to that, don't neglect doing regular, large water changes, and get reasonably good-sized (i.e. more mature) discus from an experienced source well-known for...
