Your fish are all gorgeous and very healthy looking. After seeing your post here about, "...getting the urge to grow out some discus", and seeing your altum angel posts, I'm curious about how much time you spend a week on maintenance.

Im not sure- I didn't end up getting the juvenile discus- maybe this summer.

Ill try to break it down:


60 gallon tank- 2- 50- 75% water changes weekly + other maintenance/ cleaning: 2.5 hours
180 gallon tank- 1- 75% water change weekly + other maintenance/cleaning: 2 hours

30 gallon discus pair- 2-75%- " 1 hour
30 gallon tetra tank- 1- 50% " - 30 m


Appx: 6 hours weekly.

180 g. low tech w/ wild South American cichlids, corydoras eques, and African Congo riverine tetras.
60 g. low tech w/ F1 Alenquer pair /Stendker "Tefe" discus and wild Altum Angels
30 g. low tech w/ Wild Tucano tetras
30 g. low-tech African Biotope

I've kept just abut every fish there is to keep from huge 30" Fossochromis rostratus down to tiny 3/4" gobies. I could never keep discus alive let alone make them happy enough to breed. My collector in Brazil sends me pictures all the time of stock he has available and I'd kill for 6 of his Tefe Greens. Dunno what I'm doing wrong.

I would kill for some wild Tefe Greens myself!
One of the most beautiful of the wild discus in my opinion.
Are you in the business? Or, do you just import a lot of fish for yourself?

Have you tried domestic discus?- much more forgiving than the wilds.
