    Hi everyone, I was wondering if my Blue discus is stunted because his eyes are larger than his two friends. He is in my profile pic. Anyone tell???

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Discus can get stunted real easily. What size tank you got, how many discus, other tanksmates, and your maintenance schedule? For the size of discus in your Profile ppic you need to be doing a 90% water change every second day to keep them healthy.
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I didn't use a link for my profile picture I just said add and it only say img_blah blah blah...

    Also, I just got them a day ago, I have done 50% water changes everyday, there are only 3 of them and I also have 3 pairs of rams and cardinal tetras with them. the tank is a 70 gallon.

    IMG blah blah is a link and it's exactly what you want.

    You can copy it and repost it as an image.

    Well your tank Is big enough I was waiting on you saying a 29G or something!!

    I would up the water changes to 75%, discus can always do with a bigger water change! Remember they need higher tank temps.

    Work? :P

    oh my..... never would I house discus in such a tiny tank :o, that's cruel.

    And okay I will do 75% from now on. But I need some help with their diet... right now I have tetra colour bites, blood worms (frozen), Brine shrimp (frozen) and freeze dried krill along with new life spectrum. I have only had them eat the blood worms how can I get them to eat the others??
