My fish are already having baby's so far everyone gets along well hopefully it stays that way maybe I'll hold off on the fire jewels if they are gonna chase each other although they do have that awesome red color I want in the tank so badly

Discus aggression?

I couldn't help but notice the neons behind your discus. Do your discus not mess with them? I'm still planning my 150 gallon discus tank and wondering what else could co-exist with them besides bottom feeders.

A side note about my tank.. I just stripped all the silicone out and resealed it.. and there's still one little leak on the bottom. UGHHHHH! I have to start over.

Yeah they get along no problem, but my neon tetras are huge so they were to big to eat when the discus were small, and now that they are bigger they are use to them

Thanks! It's one of my primary concerns. I LOVE my African cichlid tank, but non-cichlids (that are not bottom feeders) have a habit of disappearing one day and reappearing the next as a set of ribs connected to a spine..

My African knife is holding his own ok.. but I think he may end up getting relocated. They don't really nip him too often anymore.. but someone got ahold of his left pectoral fin about a week ago and really worked a number on it.

I know it will vary by species and availability, but out of curiousity, how much would you say you pay for your average discus?

Honestly depends where you go.. I drove to a breeder, he sold me them for 30$ each about (1.5-2inches) ive seen some breeders sell for up to 150$ for some! Most pet stores like big als sell for 70$ or so. But I'd highly recommend going to a breeder. The hardest part about keeping discus is getting healthy ones !

Breeders

I may have some luck there. I've been told this is the largest tropical fish farm area in the world. What should I look out for on the discus (other than the normal things like ich or signs of bacterial infection).
