The wife took the plunge into Discus today.
She took over another of my tanks.:roll:
Here are a few pics, of her fish in my tank. Wonder if she is going to do the water changes.:shock:

I'm pretty fortunate to have a GOOD LFS near. I've known the owner for years, and he has always bought quality fish, and taken excellent care of them. There is ALWAYS a siphon hose running out of the store.:lol:

wow!! They are stunningly beautiful. What should all the water parameters be to raise discus properly, healthy, and safely? I really want to get into discus and I don't make any mistakes so any help would be great thank you. And again those discus are just beautiful.

I keep my wifes Discus in these water parameters.
Temp 84
KH 4
GH4
PH 6.4
Nitrates <5
Nitrites 0
Amm. 0
I do 3 75% water changes per week, probably overkill since the tank is heavily plante. But I want them in pristine water. They are fed a diet of bloodworms( frozen, and FD), FD blackworms, cichlid pellets, and Omega one flakes veggie, and cichlid. Their diet is supplemented with live foods from time to time when available.
