Might be getting more discus

I was selling my 55 gallon tank, stand, lights, and some decor. Unfortunately, the guy that was originally going to buy it, really just wanted the tank and stand. I wanted to get rid of everything for it, since I had no room for it. I found out the guy had some discus. I plan to add more discus in the future, but money was going to be a concern, so I thought it over and discussed it with him about trading my tank, stand, and stuff for some of his discus. He also thought it was a good idea and mentioned trading me about 5 discus, although I really just asked for 4. They are actually adult discus, assuming about 6"-7" in size, since they are about 3-4 years old. They are Marlboro Reds (Watley straing) are supposed to be nice strain. Hopefully we'll finalize everything soon. I did some research and found pics of Marlboro reds...



Kind of excited. I hope he does agree. If they spawn, I plan to just give some of the new babies to another discus breeder in trade for fish food. I found his beefheart a little better, since it hold in, due to the jello gelatine used with the mix.

Eddie, I like it better if the 55 gallons tank will be given to me as Christmas gift.
Congrats for being a mod.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Well, we did root for you to mod the plants section as we are in need of plant mods. I don't know why you're quite unsure of it.

I pick it up in Illinois? Forget it. It will take me an arm and a limb to pay flight fare. Would FedEx mailing do? That is if you pay for the fee.

Can you imagine the cost involved in fed-exing an aquarium overseas?? Much cheaper to Fed-Ex it to me!!

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
