Nice size tank, can't wait to see it full of discus.

Do I see a refelction of a Corner tank housing discus in your second picture above? If so how many do you have already?

Good eye, I didn't see thst the first time. It looks like 5 at least.

You might want to reconsider that black background. A lot of Discus will pepper and they don’t look as nice. I made the same mistake.

BlazednSleepy 02-06-2012 10:57 PM

Ya your gonna have some peppering problems. Still a great start.

What's peppering?

Picture black pepper on a beautiful Discus.... basically dark colors and black spots on the fish.

here you go. Look at the difference from the blue to the black. Look at the orange one.

Hey guys, I have 11 discus right now, I'm getting rid of 4 which are pigeon blood, the rest that I'm keeping is albino, so I don't have to worry about peppering.
