Lots of Discus Pictures

I just got these guys in Friday, so I thought I'd share pictures of them. Usually I'd only post a couple but they were being very photogenic and I couldn't decide, so here's a whole heap of pictures. Also, please excuse the gunk on some of the plants. The SAEs are still catching up with the last of the brown algae.

First the White Butterfly/White Scorpion, who is by far the most cooperative and photogenic.







The Checkerboard Pigeon:





I love this one. It needs one of those lol captions that says "I see what you did there."


Golden Crystal:




The Snow White, who wasn't feeling cooperative:



Together:



These two like messing with each other. I'm thinking they're both female, for some reason.


Next to my as-yet-straggly four leaf clover.


Aaaand now I'm off to do a water change.

What gorgeous fish! I hope that someday I can have discus. I don't have near enough space or money for a tank the size they need, but someday I hope I will.

Awesome additions to your tank. I really like that Golden Crystal, alot. I don't have any "yellow" in my tank, just lots of blues and reds. I would LOVE to have that fish!!
I'm glad to see the pic of your Snow White. She looks just like mine and when I'm looking at her I always wonder about the tail area and the fact that I can see that red "y" in it. Since your tail and my tail look exactly the same I think I can stop worrying now.
Really nice fish. How about a full tank shot??? *pretty please*

G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!! Lucky you! They are all beautiful but the checkerboard pigeon is stunning.

Congrats.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks guys! I am really excited to have them... I think they're total stunners, but then I'm definitely biased. Romad, I totally agree with you. I just love the checkerboard!

You know Kym... Kenny still has seven of those Golden Crystals available, and his shipping is very affordable. /enabler I really wanted to make sure I got a yellow, for some reason. He had a bunch of different yellows to choose from, but I settled on the crystal. I think I made the right choice.
Huh... I hadn't noticed that "Y" shape until you mentioned it. It doesn't show up that much in the tank, but in the picture it's really visible! I guess I won't have to fishnap your Snowflake now. I think this guy is a dude though, so maybe if she's ever looking for love...

Oh no, no tank shots until this thing grows in! The plants were delayed and it sat with water and Flourite for a while, and once the plants finally got here there was a HUGE algae outbreak. The plants are definitely still recovering. The hairgrass grew super tall to avoid the algae and now looks like weeds.

Who, me? Favorites? I have no idea what you're talking about.

I thought you might have got them from Kenny! They are really awesome looking fish. I'm going to have to go check it out, as to me that Golden is a serious stunner. I really like the Scorpion, too. It's funny, we all have such different taste.
My Snowflake IS a confirmed female, but with no one to love her. When I see her spawning on a leaf all by herself...it's just so sad.
