Ok fine yes I am a liar if that makes you happy brother. These are Asian discus. Wish you could see how they are kept here. There is only one lfs
in whole country who has german stendkers and rest are Asian. There German discus are so delicate and kept in amazing pristine conditions. Rest lfs
don't know what kind of discus they have. I visited few lfs
and see some discus which they have since forever in there small tanks. One tank at lfs
have on his counter with ONLY ONE discus in it along with some tetras and when i asked him how often he changes water he said once a month but discus is fine ALONE and living. I am not saying its a good practice but telling you it happens here.
About discus in my tank, they are healthy and swimming in my 16 gallon right now. Not stressed or shy at all. You people in America asume that fish all over the world require same care. Rams here are so easy to keep then the rams you get there. Here all fish comes from asian markets and we all know how asian breeders treat there fish not to mention color dying and injecting Hormones and colors.
Also i do see many videos on internet by top discus breeders who cleared many myths which people like you creates to keep other people stay away from discus like daily water changes and all that. Some people make there own discus food etc which is totally unnecessary really. Its sad that people who keep discus never encourage other person to go for discus even if he or she has a 500 gallon tank. You people make this fish like impossible to keep.
I repeat i am keeping them for two weeks only. Yes two weeks. But i ll show you how they look after two weeks so you can see yourself. Of course this tank is extremely small but its TEMPORARY if you understand and please don't be so offended about animal cruelty because i do remember once someone asked about how to heal his small cheap fish like maybe surgery and your shocking reply was why is it a 5000 dollars arowana? You were sarcastic but for your information for some people fish are not just show off. Some people do LOVE there fish and care for them regardless of the price. Being a discus keeper if you would have been really concerned you would have helped me.
I WON'T ASK HERE ANY MORE QUESTIONS REGARDING DISCUS FISH. THANKS.
