Wow! Those are really nice - your breeding, I hope, is going well and you will need, from time to time, to sell a few hundred discus every now and again ... we all hope!Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

I am in fact breeding these guys. I have already promised two 4" fish to a certain member here. I am going to need a good 3-5 months to get a propper spawn up and going in my grow out tanks. At least that size enough to ship. I also am working on recieving 25 discus of 5 strains from a whole saler that is a hobbiest like us. All of those will be USA fish and mostly solid strains. I plan on having Crystal Yellow's with red eyes, Red Turqs, Pigeon Bloods, Cobalts and These guys up and running this time next year.
As soon as I have more info I am going to be posting more on the journal. I have neglected it intentionally because I am waiting my camera in the mail and am waiting for my grampa to come over to complete the stand. It means the world to me to do this with him because it will be a lasting fixture in my home and will always be a stable reminder of how hes supported me throughout my life.
