You can hold me to it. :) They are still a little young for breeding but hopefully it works out. I will also be breeding my marble angels and black veils.

If you are adding them to a well established tank with compatible tankmates, the correct water parameters and you get them when they are atleast 4" you shouldn't have a problem. Just make sure that you do your scheduled maintenance.

I've had two discus for about a year now. I've had no problems. Bought them as babies. I would like to have more though. I know a local breeder who has been breeding discus for over 30 years, and he sells them to me for $5 each as babies, $30 as juveniles. Even if I had problems, I wouldn't be out as much monetarily as others who don't have the luck that I do to know the guy. I haven't had any issues. I keep my water conditions as faithfully as I can to suit my fish, and I have had lots of success...even keeping discus with angels, which I know is supposed to be a big no no...I've done it, and everything's been fine.

In any case, once again, you have awesome fish NC, do you have pics of your angels up anywhere on the forum? I'd love to see them too!

Two fish are in a tank. One says to the other "So, how do I drive this thing?"

Just a couple of bad shots on my community tank page. I will take some better pics this weekend and post.
