Could we please have a discus section?

Hi AA, I was just wondering how many of you would like to have a discus section under the freshwater tab. I think discus are a topic vast enough in itself to have its own page. Discus nearly dominate the cichlid discussion tab... Who else is with me?

Ehhh, I'm gonna say no. Discus are pretty major, but not that major. (I say that even as a scientist doing research on discus)

Here's an idea I would support: Separate the cichlid section into south american and african. Maybe two separate forums, or maybe subforums within the cichlid forum. Maybe even a discus subforum, but discus shouldn't have their own forum.

Yeah, I agree. Sometimes you just have an idea and don't think it over before posting it. I think that African and South American sub forums are a great idea though.

I'm afraid to go on there; discus fans are... passionate, and I don't think I could take it if they tore my project apart

Simplydiscus is where i started for info when i first was breeding them. But honestly find the asian forums and translate through adobe. Talk about a ton of info..... Info they dont even wamt us newb westerners knowing. Its a lifestyle over there.

LOL Been just trying to get them to separate the Africans and Sa/Ca's for 3 years now and your asking for a discus only section. I agree it would be nice but I think there is a chance for advertisements being seen less due to less traffic in the split up sections.

I like the idea of a seperation of african central and south anerican cichlids. Each deserves a section.
