I'd don't, lol ... though I'd LOVE TO have the time for a huge planted discus tank! I don't think I would have the time to perform 50% water changes in a huge tank twice a week - for this is what Discus need: a huge tank, and large and frequent water changes.

Not I, but I am thinking about it. I have a 55 gallon tank in my front room that is sitting empty at the moment. I am slowly collecting the substrate, decor, and most importantly the lighting I will need to get it started. Reading up on discus has been part of the fun of trying to plan what ill go in the tank. I want bigger, peaceful fish that are colorful- but at the same time I want to be absolutely sure I am up for the long term care that they will need before purchasing them.

One thing I am certain of- they are amazing fish!!

YAAAAY FOR DISCUS! They are the coolest fish i've ever owned. Definitely a bit harder to keep sometimes but so worth it.

I have a 92 gallon corner show tank. I have 10 discus fish. Two of them are approx. 4 inches in size the other 8 are between 2 and 3 inches.

I am new (today) to this forum. We share a common interest in discus fish. I now have 10.
