    Cermet, how big is the discus in the fourth picture on the right. He looks nice and round but smaller?

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...

    Believe it or not, he is as big as the yellow one next to him/her. Because of the camera, she/he was lowering his/her fins. The other yellow one, not in the picture, is slightly bigger than either. All three are just under 7 inches. I have two blues as big as these and one blue over seven (a female, part of a mated pair.) I have a 'runt' in the tank who is somewhat over five inches - who you can see on the far left (third to the left), trying to hid from the camera but ready for any food that might fall his/her way ... .

    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.

    Great looking fish

    I've always been temped to start a discus tank
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thankyou for sharing Cermet, amazing how deceptive pictures can be sometimes. I thought he might have been the runt. Sorry for doubting. I'll be using those pics to persuade my wife that I need a discus tank.

    wow! awesome, makes me want to jump into the Discus sooner than I plan. IMO, the best looking fish that are not in saltwater...
