Research Discus before you buy any!

Sounds good to me...after the tank is cycled and stable, of course! Maybe he can give any advice you may need...

i reccomend discus for people who has had a few years of fish keeping
cause ive had my share of killiing fish on accident and disease ridden fish bought from lfs
and escpecially with younger discus you need alot of time for them
so if you work 2 jobs or 12 hr days or business trips
i doubt its gonna turn out with great results

the best conditions for 2 inch discus are;
young discus live way better in a bb tank, high temps like 86,
6 feedings a day,a varied diet and daily water changes at least 50%
and no tankmates +10gal per discus

you can put 2 inch discus in a community tank
and it could work
but i wouldn't.

When you do the 50% daily water changes, do you use raw tap water that is not adjusted to the tanks ambient conditions?

what i do is
i have a 55 gallon drum,i fiil it to the right temp using hot n cold
i have a digi therm haging in there always
lucky for me i dont really have to age my water
i aged it once over night and it rose 2 points
so no big deal
i used to use prime but amquel is cheaper wth a bigger bottle
while the water is draining in the tank the water in the drum is rolling
with amquel
then pump with a pond pump and a python

actually my discus are about 5 inches or so and i made there tank into a planted tank
