My new Discus.

Got anything you want to show off?

Here's a few Discus pics, they have coloured
up a little and settled in a bit.
I picked up 5 Red Leopards & 5 Blue Turqs,
I only have them a week so i am pretty pleased
with the way they have acclimatised.

I suspect that out of 10 you are likely to get at least one pair!

How big is the tank?

Wowee - they are beautiful...
Dark says he likes the red one best - it looks like it has horns due to the black markings...
