Also do you have any other fish in with yours, besides a cleaner crew I mean? I don't, just them and a whole bunch of cories, a couple of ottos and a striped raphael catfish. If you ever found a striped raphael I would highly suggest it because discus like high water quality, which of course you know, and that fish eats everything that is left over from the discus so nothing is left to spoil the water quality. Plus they're cool too.
Hello, the Red Turqs are about 4-5", the Snakeskin is about 3.5-4", one of the Tangerine's is about 3" and then I have a smaller Tangerine and a Red Turq which are about 2.5". Something like that. The only other fish in the tank atm is a small Clown Pleco. I will be adding a couple dozen Amano Shrimp when I get back from vacation, however. I will keep an eye out or even special order a striped raphael - thanks for the advice.
