Hi Everyone !
Hi Guys . New to the forum and pretty new to tropical fish keeping . I can honestly say i have never been hooked on anything as much as i am with my fish . I've had my tank now for about 6 to 7 months and love it . I did the standard newby thing and stocked fish to early and got the ammonia thing going on but got on top of it pretty quick . My tank is going great guns now and love watching my Discus and others fish for hours at a time . Nothing better than coming home from work and destressing with a cold beer and sitting in front of the tank. Looking forward to meeting other fellow fish lovers :) .
Like it here ? I love it . it's all about fish and everything to do with it . Got to be the best hobby i have every had :)
Hi Mick and welcome!
I noticed your tank is kept at 26C which converts to 79F. I'm thinking you should raise your temps a bit for the Discus. Check out the profile here on these fish. Of course, you'll have to consider the temp requirements of the others you have with them.
Your tank looks lovely. Love Discus fish, and wish I had a tank that large to keep them in
Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard
Thanks for the welcome guys . The tank does normally sit on 27c but at it's coldest it's 26c . It is a central type heat to accommodate for all the fish i have . they are all happy so i'm happy . Thanks again .
I may already have welcomed you in another thread, but more "welcome" never hurts. Glad you joined us.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
Thanks Dormfish and Byron . I haven't asked any questions as yet only because i've been reading a heap of threads and finding endless info . It's been great .
