OK, here it goes. back in the spring of this year I sold all my Discus off as the Job was pulling me away from taking care of them properly. I announced that on here and I remember
SLUG saying "you'll be back, once you get the discus bug you can't stay away very long."
Well, he is right and this time tomorrow I will be getting some new ones at more doorstep. I have missed them since I sold them so will start a new. going to go with some juvies this time around and the tank is ready for them. can't wait.

Haha I've been resisting the discus bug for quite a while now. Every time I see them though I'm sorely tempted to start again.

well, interesting in itself. I have no idea. I have chosen a group of mixed 2.5 - 3inch discus. normally would never do it this way
but these are free. how? won in a contest on another forum for a picture of the one as my profile pic here, I just had to pay shipping.
I just got them in and they are acclimating, will see what we have later. one looks like a red Turq but I didn't take a good look at the rest.
the good thing about this is they are all Tony Tan Discus, just google that and you will see the quality, so I am happy with what ever I got.

You're so lucky, getting free discus! I'd like to try them one day but they're just so expensive. Anyway, I can't wait to see pictures!

Beautiful!

This is one fish that pictures cannot do justice.
They are so cool in person.

Very nice! I believe they will grow out even nicer under your proper care. Are you going to feed beefheart?

a beefheart flake (called pro-growth) and freeze dried black worms will be their staple.

UPDATE with PICS
So it has been 11 weeks and they are growing like a weed, the one above in post # 20 has probably grown beyond 4 inches already and is outpacing his tankmates in leaps and bounds. here is a few pics, I have started them eating some color bits as well as freeze dried beefheart to add to their diet.

Did you figure out what the blue one was? I like the two-tone pattern he's got going.
