Wish I would've just spent the extra cash and got one of those instead of my Marineland, not knocking my Marineland but their customer support blows...
Ok is that for a different tank? Because that’s way to small for a 110.
Who did you buy from?
It looks slightly beaky to me
He looks like he's been through the ringer, I'd name him Scarface
You should contact the seller just in case he has serious damage.
You could call him Montana? Tony Montana aka ScarfaceStendker import. He looks more traumatized than beaky to me but with every fin being clammped it's hard to gauge. Still I figured it best to post and show every stage of the journey.
I already have a male called Scar. So how about "Face."
I'm hoping it's just cosmetic
He's still acclimating his eyes are more black than red but I'll update as soon as he's settled.
It is a very nice looking fish. Hopefully he perks up. As for name - i'd call him blue because well he looks blue !
What is the new fishes in the bag. Also with regards to fighting - fin slapping i call bickering for control; when my angels actually fight one usually ends up dead.
So in the video. When the smoke clears is that Montana in the front. If so wow he looks great! Great looking discus luv the long fins.
First alert I’ve gotten on this thread in over a week. What did the breeder say about his arrival condition?
I'm still confused by the video - what are all the little fishes swimming around the discus ? I know you have black neon but these look like hundreds.
Lol yeah I was pretty confused buy the bag thing too.
That’s a good deal 14 cm. Had to redo that to about 5.5 inch’s. He looks bigger in the pictures. Even with his fins closed he looks great. Good luck with him.
LOL, been there for sure, hundreds of pics to get a good one.It took an absolute age to get just 1 useable (not blurred) pic.

But have to admit when you finally get a good pic...
And now the fun/frustration begins. Hopefully, you'll have better success than I did with my pairs.
I had a similar problem awhile back. I noticed the temp read-out on the display was low. So I adjusted the heater higher, a few days later same thing. Now thinking I may have a heater going bad.
Then on tank maintenance day noticed the different temps in my tanks with my hands. The LCD with probes were all reading fine, but the water felt warmer/cooler in some tanks, all should be 78'. Checked the tanks with a infrared temperature gun. Sure enough all the tanks were off by a few degrees. And 8' degrees warmer in the original problem tank. Since switched to other thermometers. All is well.
Thanks, for sharing.
I always use three different sources for temps so if one is broken the other two are correct
I have these lcd strips on the tank; the read out from the heater itself and a probe i sometimes use.
It seems odd they would die if the temp went from 28 to 28.5 for a short period however it might be more likely that 28c is in general too warm for them so over long period of time they slowly die or it might not be temp related at all.
Every test I ran came back the same. From PH through to GH/KH I even used two different branded liquid tests for Nitrite and ammonia but the only thing that had changed was the temp. I'm thinking 28 was their upper limit and beyond that caused the losses.
Did you notice if any of them were gasping. I wonder if there is an oxygen issue. Do you have anything in your tank that injects surface movement or current (power head, sponge filter, ...)
Yes a lot of fish can’t handle the heat. When I first started regular neons were the go to fish. But now it’s understood they can’t take the heat. What I have is rams 10 blue gold and the electric blue. Even these will only live about 2 years. Another good fish is sae. There peaceful dart around a lot and will eat algae.
