If I didn't have to work for a living (most time 2 jobs with the greenhouse business) we could make a living doing what we love...hell I've already got 3 pairs of discus & my luck I'll get two more pairs tomorrow lol!

I, too, thought discus were more mild tempered and you have my sympathy for the stress you've had with yours. But thanks, also, for the info on the adolfoi.
I've only had fish shipped once and from not so far away as TWS. But I think I may take the plunge in the near future when I can plan to take a day off and be home when they're delivered. Even though they are advertised as really small, I don't think I can beat that price, even with shipping added.

Tonight was water change night. Before doing so, I was able to take some pics and vids of the 20 & 75. I'll try to get those uploaded tomorrow night. It's going to be a hectic weekend, though, since my wife is travelling for work. My parents are coming in to help with the kids, before they take off for Ohio, so I might not be around much. I'll try to make some appearances, though. =]
Oh, and I think I've decided to either go with L204 (Flash Pleco), L128 (Blue Phantom Pleco) or L306 (Panaqolus sp.). I've been able to find L204 and L128, but not L306 (yet). Still going to look around. If anyone knows anyone, etc... throw me a bone, would ya? The Flash is about $16, the Blue Phantom is about $40 and I'm not sure about the Panaqolus sp, yet.

I quite like those Blue Phantoms and was going to cast my vote in that direction. But those Flash Plecos are sharp. That's the one I'd choose.

You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

If you get Sterbais going, they go for $6 a pop over here, and they always sell at top dollar at our fish auctions. People love 'em.
