Beautiful Discus

These are my two pairs of Discus. Two are wild caught Green Tefe Discus and the other two are blue snakeskin. These guys have such a personality. They're like little kids. Even the wild caught ones will eat right out of my hand.

Water changes of 50% or more on a daily basis. Never will you want your nitrates above 20ppm! Flat slate for them to lay eggs on. Temp should be around 80-83 degrees. Ph should be a stable 6-6.5. Good luck.
