I don't know if I can get a picture of that spot. It's pretty small. Barely noticeable. Probably nothing. I'll see.

Yes it is... I have a 29 gal right now that could probably hold about 4 of your size discus, but I don't really like the sensitive babies. I like discus that are about 3 1/2-4 inches, and are just starting to be a nice round shape and are colouring up, not to mention getting a bit hardier than the babies, but I'd need a 50 for those. I've been itching to start 'The Journey' for years but only now I think I am experienced enough for them... But those sizes are when they start to get pricey. I have 3 minor-chain pet stores in my area that all sell very unhealthy baby discus for $19, a PS+ that doesn't sell discus, 2 big Ps that don't sell discus, a great LFS for saltwater but with a few dingy FW tanks with grimy angels or koi, maybe a crayfish or two, and an AMAZING LFS with AMAZING fish and a super nice and knowledgable owner but the discus are super overpriced, and I probs couldn't get discus in the size I want for under $85. Right now I'm 13 though and I plan to start 'The Journey' when I am 16 when I can have a job, more experience, and a mom who sees me as a responsible person with a passion for fish instead of a little kid with a tank. Hopefully you guys and AA will still be around by that time . And I agree with caleb, even if it looks harmless, it can be something crazy.

It's ok. There's a lot to be said about discus.

I'm not going to treat just yet. I'm hoping I won't have to, but I do appreciate the input. I'll definitely be in touch if I need any help.

I haven't been keeping up with my WC's as good as I was....

It's such a small spot, I doubt most people would even notice. But you know how we are. I don't even think my camera will pick it up, but I'll try to get a pic just the same.

Just moved them into the main tank. They already seem less shy. Hopefully I can get some good pictures when I cut the lights back on tomorrow...
