New Discus

The wife took the plunge into Discus today.
She took over another of my tanks.
Here are a few pics, of her fish in my tank. Wonder if she is going to do the water changes.

Lucky you!
I been wanting discus in my tank for a while now, parents always saying no!
Don't worry, I get through to them one day!
They looks super cute too!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

I'm pretty fortunate to have a GOOD LFS near. I've known the owner for years, and he has always bought quality fish, and taken excellent care of them. There is ALWAYS a siphon hose running out of the store.
