Oh. ****ums. I did not know that. Kym, the filter is running ~ should I soak the bags now. These fish have to get out of these bags...

Instantly cycled, right?

Don't panic. Yes, float the bags now. How long have they been in the bags? What size is the QT tank? Instantly cycled? If it's a filter of a cycled tank, then yes.
Is your plan to dump them from the bags into the QT? Or??
What size is the QT tank??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Hell, about well over an hour. But he put them in extra huge bags. The tank is 20gal. Yes, I am going to soak them and then add tank water a little bit then eventually put them in.

Yes?


Kym, this lfs tanks are awesome! So clean the he keeps all tanks at 82. All of them. He says that that makes their color pop. They are Asian and have oodles of awards for their discus everywhere!

I wouldn't be worried about the time in the bags, since they are in large bags and it's only been an hour. When I bring home new fish by the time I get home and release them it's almost always a two hour time frame, as my favorite LFS is quite the jaunt from my house. They will be fine in the bags.

I never like adding any LFS water to my tanks but since no one else is in the QT this time it will not matter.

I never do either. But I did think about it since it was the QT tank. Well ~ the sharks are doing great!! The two black Mollies are hanging on the bottom:(

Think they are scared? I test and there is no ammonia and the pH is fine. I hope they are going to be okay.

I am so glad you were here. I would not be trippin or so stressed over Discus. But these community fish I know so little about them!

They are expanding? There were some gang members sitting around outside. Typical for that area and they are always very nice ~ if you can believe that!

J ~ are his Discus to die for? OMG. I wanted them all, woman!!

Yeah, he's got gorgeous discus! Yeah, they took over the space next door to them. Their store used to be smaller.

That first pic is a Flowerhorn. He's got lots of those too.

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.
