Thank you. These are my wife's babies. She has wanted Discus for a long time. I think I just inherited more work.

Foster, are you in Ohio? I went to an auction this weekend and they sold 2 discus that looked very similar to those. Very pretty, congrats!

If you mean the red on white pattern, they are Carnations
The water is acidified by CO2 The PH after co2 is on for a bit is 6.4, the temp is kept at 84. 3-75% water changes per week, fed with a wide variety of food, including live, pellet, flake, frozen, and freeze dried.

No, I am in mid Michigan. The Carnations are fairly easy to find.
