    Cool!!!

    I'm curious, how do you keep your water parameters at the right range? I've seen that south american cichlids only show their colors in the right water parameters.

    I have pretty good water right out of the tap:
    pH 7.4;GH 3/KH 5; TDS 125-135. I also dont need to age my water because have a negligible pH bounce in 24hr period.
    But, with discus,consistency is key and clean,clean water. They are adults now,so do 2 x 50% water changes weekly.

    That's ok, you can keep cichlids that prefer harder water. Also, pH doesn't mean that much, it's your kh/gh and TDS that determines how hard/soft your water is (just to let you know)

    I know that. my hardness is like 400ppm. . .
    The problem is, I can't really afford to order fish online because of the shipping, and my lfs doesn't have any shell-dwelling cichlids which are the only ones i'm told that can fit in a 20gal

    They are certainly not hard to keep-just more time consuming than other fish:)
