Gorgeous Discus!

Do you just keep a pair together? And no other discus? Are they fine (socially) like that for life?

That's some of the brightest Discus I've ever seen! Very nice, and congrats on the babies.

Thanks and thanks and thanks.

I believe the discus are super red x snakeskin.
Was sold to me as super red discus.

Right now I have 4 dsicus, 2 Rummy nose, 3 blue ram, 6 cory, 2 Otto cat.
This tank is going to be my anubias tank, waiting for my seller from thailand to shipped out my big order of anubias.

I'm also going to add more Rummy nose, maybe 13 more.
8 panda cory, maybe 3 more blue ram. And toss about 8 more Otto in the tank.
I'm also going to add 3 more discus. Maybe some red Melo

I wish you all the best of success, In.a.box
Little advice - take it easy on the number of Otos - and be sure to keep an eye on them- when they get older, fatter, and lazier, some of them may have a tendency to take a liking to discus' slime coatings as part of their diet. It's happened to me, more than once - same thing with Siamese Algae Eaters. So be careful.

Thank you
Happen to me couple of time as well. Before I have 9 in there but took them all out.
My Otto feed on vegg stick which is a good thing.
I'm thinking of moving the pair into a 40B and add a clay pot.

My ram are pairing up as well.
