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. :lol: 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.

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


Golden Crystal:

The Snow White, who wasn't feeling cooperative:

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. :oops:


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

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.

I only have one word. WOW.

aunt kymmie 02-20-2011 06:58 PM

Well, someone wasted no time at all in changing their avatars. Are we playing favorites?? ;-)

They are gorgeous discus!!!

Ostara 02-20-2011 08:02 PM

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. :-D /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... :lol:

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. :roll:

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

beautiful fish! I envy you. I do like the assassin's creed emblem in the signature too.. :-)

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. :-(
