    Thanks Chris and Daniel. As of tonight, I've observed the little guys chow down on NLS Thera A, FDBW, and Tetra Colorbits. Hungry little guys.

    Those rcs will add some good protein for the young ones.

    Thanks for the encouragement Jackson, April and Ming. The little guys haven't figured out the RCS are food yet. I'm hoping they don't eat too many, but they certainly won't go hungry.

    April, I'm hoping my technique is best of course!

    Thanks Rick. They are really going at the blackworm now. I can see nice round bellies, so things are looking good. I was a little worried for a while that they wouldn't come out for the blackworm and wouldn't get enough food.

    June update since it's the 1st of the month. All fish eating well and not skittish now. This tank uses an RKL controller so I stop all the current for 2 minutes during feeding. Haven't missed a daily 80% wc yet. Still continuing to feed NLS Thera A in the mornings, Colorbits early afternoon, 3 feedings of fdbw afternoon to early evening and then Ken's mini 5 stick blend before lights out.

    Wow I didn't realized it's been that long since I posted anything. Took some quick phone pics just to show their growth and size. Lighting is horrific as the sun is coming in from the south facing windows.

    Gary,

    Looking good my friend! Discus look vibrant and active.What pleco's do you got in there? Trying to figure it out and have my guesses but lets have it.Curious about all the flow through the water column, do the discus like it much ? Thanks for sharing your photos.
