I'm with h1 treat them like tetras and the rule for them is 10 gal per fish but u want to keep them in at least groups of 6 IMO and there are lots of hobby breeders out there that offer them at a fair price

in the area im in unfortunately, this was actually the first discus i seen around here.. i just see them on camera on youtube or internet, but when i seen the lemon one, i had to get it.. im probably gonna downsize on my agels back to 2 again, the chalceus is a bit jumpy, so cant be by the tank for very long, ive found, the more plants you have, the less the sd's can move, and that means more cover for the discus. if i could get a discus that was hand raised, locally, without shipping, i would be ok.

Gotcha. Just had to be said. You got the "cobalt blue" or the "lemon"?

the cobalt blue one was there when i came today, i never intended on getting it, i wanted the lemon one. it was beautiful. but, the lemon was killed about 2 days before.. the discus i got has a cobalt blue face, with a lateral black line through its eye, and a red/orange body. anyone reccomend a water change schedule? i was thinking 20% a week. i have 4 filters crammed into it, trying to get the water exceptional.

I think he got the cobalt blue, I believe you wanted the lemon peel but it died before you could get it, right?

HN1 and I do 50% weekly (since ours are not juvies). Our tank is 75 gallons, heavily planted, with 4 discus and 8 sterbai cory.

With any discus I would do at least 50% weekly, but that is JMO. I do 50% on all tanks.
