When I kept fish before (over 20 yrs ago) the Discus was my dream fish. I still oooohhhhh and aaaahhhh and dream. Maybe some day.

If you want good info about Discus Slug is the man for the Job. I think he's got his own blog. Check it out or PM him.

Good morning,

I have moved your thread to the Cichlid/Discus section of the forum.

I agree with Navy that Slug has great knowledge and lots of experience with Discus. Until you correspond with him (if you decide to) here are a couple of links you may enjoy:

What would you like to know?

Generally regarded as a hard to keep fish....I like to debunk most of those myths. They do take more care then your average tropical tank or goldfish, but they arn't THAT hard to keep. 1 Adult per 10gals, they can reach 6-7" sometimes 8" in diameter. They like to be in groups and I'd recommend a tank no less then 40-50gals to start with. Breeding pairs can be kept in tanks as small as 20gals.

They eat flakes, pellets, homemade recipies (beefheart, seafood mixes), bloodworms, blackworms, you name it.

What else would you like to know?
