It was all Joseph's fault , but I'm sure glad he turned me onto wild discus. I love them too.Very nice, I've always loved wilds.
I wish I could say 100's, but only 8. It just seems like a lot because they like to stay so close to each other. I'm in no rush, but I sure hope to add to this collection very soon.Those are some nice looking wild discus ! Just how many do you have ?
Thanks, Justin!! Just when is the discus bug gonna bite your butt??!!
Thank you, DanielAwesome looking wilds.
Thanks, Ed. Oh, and thanks again for the kits - they look soooo much better than pukey Eheim greenvery purdy...
Shhhh....don't tell my domestics, but I do too They get so THICK and chunky. Way sturdier and tougher, IMO, as well. But I love ALL my discus equallyI find wilds way more attractive.
Right....nice try, Gary! Gotta appreciate the effort Most of the shots are of the two I got from Charles. The colors are insane on these fish. If you just walk by the tank, you wouldn't even bother to stop, but if you do - the fish swim right over and start flashing that wild yellow/lime green color. Both of them are almost the same size as Joseph's wild heckel which is a VERY large fish. I'm kicking myself for not buying more of Charles' first batch - I simply didn't have the room. But now that I've got the space, I'm patiently waiting to see what may be coming in......Dang, I jumped in here looking for "they're so boring I'm going to give 'em away!"
I just recently replaced all my lights with Coralife Aqualight T5 HO fixtures from April. I LOVE them. The one on this tank has a 54W 10,000k and a 54W Actinic Blue bulb.those are amazing, what kind of lighting are you using?
They should be.....they eat better than I dogreat quality discus! super healthy!
Since I put the domestics into their own tank, I keep looking at all the space in the 90 gallon tank with only 8 wilds and I've been oohing and ahhing over many a website these last couple of nights I have a feeling I'll be placing an order or two in the near futureGreat looking fish Shelley!!!!....I'm so jealous. Discus are so addictive. You get one and want one of every species.
Thanks, BrianWow! They look awesome!
VERY much appreciated, Mello.Nice collection Shelley!
Why thank you, Lisa!Very nice discus Shelley!!
A big difference in size from my smallest heckel hybrid to the largest which is also a heckel.....my guess would be 3 inches up to 6.5 inches, maybe. With the wilds I prefer to look at thickness instead of overall size to give me an idea how well they are doing.Nice looking fish! Love the blue pattern on the head. What size are they now?
