Got my first 2 baby discus

I will post pics later. I got them both for $33.99 total. They accidentally only charged me for one. They are actually bigger than just babys maybe midsized

Congrats on the discus. May I ask what size tank and what tankmates you have them in with?

Zagz,

I have a 54 gallon corner tank and i will soon (Within the next 2 months) be turning it into a planted tank and house mainly discus. But right now my discus seem to be doing fine with its tank mates:

3 rainbows
1 swanfaldi barb
3 green koreys
2 rosey barbs
2 flame gouramis

tHE PH IS AT 6.4 AND I HAVE THE TANK AT 82 DEGRESS

lMK IF THIS IS AN AQUATABLE ENVIROMENT FOR THESE DISCUS.

I'd slowly raise the temp to 85-86 for the discus. For the other fish you will want to increase some aeration until you get them out of the tank. I'd love to see some pics.
