    Hi Greg, Only got one Discus in the Osaka with various tetras. Seems to be doing ok on it's own but not an ideal situation. Got a planted community set up too. Possible house move on the cards so don't want to commit to more Discus at the moment. Hope life is treating you well mate.

    As well as can be expected mate. Off to Kenya next week for last time, we have been lucky enough to go 7 times in 10 years and had some wonderful memories of safari so time to try something different next year I reckon. I only have two discus left myself, the pair I got from Mark at DD (getting quality at beginning pays dividends), they are in the wall tank with a crowd of 13" tall altums and sterbs.....still hanker after changing over to wild discus again at some point but have not taken the jump.......yet.......mainly because I don't know anyone with a deep enough tank to take the altums! Lol

    They do. And so much More bullet proof than discus IME. The tank needs a major overhaul which I plan to do when I get back from Kenya at end of month. The Devils ivy I grow out the top is getting just too "rooty", now with it taking up nearly a third of the tank with roots so I need to cut it back some below waterline as well as above. Between the Devils ivy and the constant drip change I now never have problems with water spikes or quality, works well for a lazy sod like me!
    Always tempted when I see pics of hecks but in all honesty, think what I have is what I will have for some time yet. Will try to post some pics once I tidy it up at end of month.
