    Great questions Kevin. That is the thoroughness we should all strive for.

    Thank you for answering those questions (in great detail), Per, I really, really appreciate it. I knew you'd have some answers due to your experiences with them, just didn't know what to expect. I can understand how nerve racking it can be to try a different method than the suggested method, due to the costs of these fish. Even I'm a little hesitant/nervous about deterring from the "suggested" method, but I'd like to try it in a way I can enjoy them better.

    Rest assured, I'll probably have a multitude of questions for you, when the time comes. lol

    Just finished reading your response Sandz. Thanks for that, I too feel more confident I could raise a few of these fellows. I will never forget DiscusHans saying that they are no harder to keep than cardinal tetras. People have cardinal tetras die by the thousands but no one thinks they are hard to keep cause they cost a few bucks. It's all a matter of perspective.

    Yes, Per really did a wonderful job of breaking down the questions and answering in great detail as always.
    I would suggest also, anyone interested in keeping discus should visit the Simply Discus forum and read EVERYTHING. There is a tremendous wealth of knowledge from people with bare bottom to planted tanks. When I first joined there I immediately disliked a few people who I thought to be quite harsh but after almost a year now I have come to value their straight forward responses. For some members there is only one way to do things, mostly these people are breeders and that way works for them. I truly believe in the advice to start out bare bottom (for domestics), get to know the discus and as your confidence grows develop your tank as you wish. There is a member on Simply that has a 300 gallon discus tank with quite a variety a community fish and her substrate is a thin layer of gravel...I gasped when I saw this as so many have shouted from the mountains that this is the worst thing possible for discus!!!! She does 1 weekly 90% water change (flush and fill method) and a couple small partial during the week. Her fish are not only beautiful but very healthy. There is another member who has a fully planted discus community tank and was actually able to have a pair spawn and produce fry. To my knowledge only one survived and it is small but healthy and happy.
    There are many ways to keep discus as there are ways to build a house but without a good foundation the house will crumble.
    I like the example Compass made in regard to cardinal tetras, they have certain requirements to thrive, can be difficult to acclimate but if you lose one or two no big financial hit to the wallet.

    Was just going to ask that. ;/ It's definitely been a while. Wish they would have dropped their e-mails on some of us, before disappearing.
