After keeping exclusively African Cichlids for the past 10 years, this will be my first time raising discus. Since my first visit to Rick's fish room several years ago, I've always had a discus tank in my future plans.
Before I left to pick up the fish, I filled up the 20 gal tank and set the heater to 86F. Picked up the group of six from Rick yesterday afternoon, and they seem to be relatively happy so far. Still a bit reluctant to move around the tank, but I think they just need time to get settled. Ate half a cube of FDBW 3 hours after they were introduced, and again this morning before I left for school. Pics below. I'll change the water when I get home later this afternoon. Looking forward to seeing these guys grow!
