And btw hi everyone! Long time no see. Been breeding a lot of Africans for the past year that I have been off here. Decided to give Discus a try. Wish me luck! Any one with advice and experience feel free to share please :)
beauties Rhea and hi long time (it happens . been there done that )
More and more Discus on this site now Good luck to you
Hey Harvick! Just reading you're awaiting a babe! Congrats and I am thinking about your wife, poor girl. Labour sucks! Good luck and try to get some sleep in :)
Woohooo!!! So glad to see more Discus, I also started discus for the first time a month ago Rhea, if you want, check out my pics. I got a Red Melon pair, and I'm hoping to breed them. I don't think we've met, but you have great fish.
Thanks Joey! I know a fair amount about Africans and SA's but hate to say I am scared to mess up with these beautiful fish! I will check out your pics
Thanks Rhea , Not married yet lol we are in no rush , engaged but waiting it out . Excited for the little guy to get here thats for sure . been a rough pregnancy for her . pre term labor 3 times . he wanted to come early and now doesn't want to check out . mini bar must be awesome in there LOL
Oh, trust me Rhea. I freak out all the time about mine. Its a stressful thing to keep them let alone try and breed them. But I'm on a schedule, so far so good. They are just scaredy cats sometimes, so I alwasy think somethings wrong but nothing ever is. Their color is amazing, thats why I love Discus, lol. Your discus are beautiful as well. I love the patterns on yours.
Like my family thinks I'm nuts! I keep checking them and the temp, and the water etc....What's your schedule? Once a week changes? What are you feeding? I am reading mixed reviews on frozen blood worms. A lot of people seem to be making a beef heart blend. So far I am feeding tetra colour granules and frozen blood worms and they go crazy for the worms. Thoughts?
Well mine are shy about almost everything, so I don't know of they like everything until I come downstairs 30 min later and all the food is gone lol.. I feed them my homemade beefheart mix, bloodworms, and special discus pellets, special discus flakes, and dried brine shrimp. I do a 50% water change EVERY OTHER DAY... The only thing they LOVE is the bloodworms, so that you should do. It is super hard... but it keeps me busy... like a 14 year old boy isn't busy ITS HARD. But I'm a begginer, so im hoping it gets easier.
Oh my lord! EVERY OTHER DAY??!! How many tanks do you have?? I have to stick with once a week I have way too much going on! What is your beefheart mix made up of??
I have 4 tanks, And yup.. its a lot of work.. Um.. You can get tons of beefheart recipies online, just try wichever one you can do, most are super. Thats what I did.
Ok great! Thanks so much Joey!
No problem, I'm learning about them everyday too. We'll help eachother, lol
Very nice Rhea.. I gotta stop by there next time I'm in Calgary and check these beauties out!1 Looking at a new hog right now so maybe we can go for a little run this summer!!:)
