Nice discus! I wish I could start a discus tank. Unfortunately don't have the room for it.

I think I might give it a name I don't usually name fish.

Any suggestions?

Great looking fish! I'd name him 'Shot Put'!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

You should name him Cheesy Poof.

I don't know anything about discus, but love the look, are they hard to keep? How many can you have in a 50g? can they be kept with other fishies?

hmmm, I think I have some reading to do....

He seems happy by himself so I have time to find some other nice colour/patterned ones.

Nice discus what siz tank is it in what tankmates etc keep us posted. As for Blue gouramies I think it should work but i dont have any experience with them together. Out of curiosity how much did you pay for him and how big is he. I think my lfs' discus might be way overpriced.
