Well boys and girls, I accidentally discovered the 25% off sale that Uncle Sam's was having today, and not wanting to miss a great opportunity to save some serious cash and get awesome discus, I ordered 10. I purchased the Fire Ruby Ring Leopard 2.5" (4), Alenquer F1 3-3.5" (3), and Blue Diamond 3-3.5" (3) strains.
To prepare for their delivery, I'm going to move my original discus into the re-scape (still haven't decided on them) and use the 56 gallon as the grow out tank. Also going to start gathering foodstuffs- california black worms and some high protein flake, along with some beeefheart. Also, I'll be preparing for the feeding and water change grind that is discus growing.
Still planning on adding some cardinal tetras to the tank, and perhaps some Amano shrimp (again, still not sure about the shrimp).
