new pics of my wilds
about 8 monthe ago I posted some pics of my shipment of wild discus, and how fed ex destroyed the box. 3 of 8 made it thru the first day. I gave a brief discription of my tank and there was some concern about keeping wilds in a ph of 7.6. one gentleman went so far as to insist my fish would be dead within 3 days. click to the present. my fish are healthy, beautiful, and growing. largest is almost 7" and the rest are close to 6". decided for once to use flash. hope you enjoy. first up is the stars.

Beautiful Dee, just beautiful, and the lemon tetras and festivums look like they are supposed to. Congratulations on a lovely tank.

Great looking fish. I absolutely love wild Discus. I personally find them to be more attractive than the captive bred color strains.

Great looking fish and tank.

Colorful fish, obviously happy. And crystal clear water! You must have some heavy-duty filtration on that tank.
