    Loving the golden lolipops. Did you get them from Kenny? I saw he recently sold some as of last month. I love your set ups. Can you maybe detail your personal regime? Welcome to the AC, VERY glad to see more discus people on here.

    Also do you feed the lollipops anything like the ground marigold in their food? I see them always turn orange. Also LOVE the fins on your turqs.

    No, I got them locally from Canadian Aqua Farm Discus Hatchery here in Vanvouver (Rick Grange), who is probably the foremost supplier of quality discus in Canada.
    He imports from Forrest Discus in Malaysia, the same source of discus that Kenny has.

    Yes, the Golden Lollipops are difficult to keep yellow, and not turn orange. One has to very carefully watch what is being fed to them - but I don't bother - they of course eat anything & everything I give to all my discus, and they are turning orange. So be it.

    As for my tank regime - nothing special, but I do work diligently at it.
    I use AC HOB filters on my discus tanks - among other things, the media I swear by is filter floss (replaced with new floss every second week without fail), along with Purigen use 24/7 (re-charged every 3 weeks), and fine mesh pre-filters on the filter intakes (well rinsed every 2nd day).
    The water clarity is maintained by the floss, the purigen, the pre-filters, along with regular use of UV sterilization.

    I do 2 to 3, - 65-70% wcs a week, and the tanks get a full, careful vac and tank glass wipe-down with each wc.
    My lighting is T5 HO bulbs - approx. 1 watt/gallon, for a photoperiod of max 7 hrs./day. I use root tab ferts in the PFS substrate, and moderate weekly dosing of liquid macros & micros.
    That's about it.

    I love Forrests fish. Thats why the Lollipops looked so familiar. I have also spoken with Rick before by email. Very nice fish!

    It is greatly encouraging to hear another keeper that has the system worked out. Obviously you have some great success with it. Thanks for the info, I really would push your regime to anyone who sets up a planted tank. It really is no where near as hard as people make it out to be with today technology. Pythons make w/c so simple that it really just takes 20 min I would take to watch a show to drain and fill.
