are  you  feeding  them  with  BHM  or  bloodworms?                

 Hikari  Frozen  Bloodworms,  will  also  get  some  Blackworms  in  future  as  suggested  by  Sridhar.
 
 Thanks  Neil,  Clive,  Sourav  &  Abhida  for  your  best  wishes.  Smile

 Yogesh,thanks  for  sharing  all  the  infos.Now  I  have  so  many  questions  to  ask  you  that  you  may  get  ultimately  tired.But  can't  help  asking.Why  are  you  not  feeding  the  wild  ones  with  BHM?I  understand  that  it  would  foul  the  water  but  you  always  go  with  super  water  changes(I  still  remember  you  saying  that  you  went  for  4  WCs  for  Wayne's  BDs).
 
 Moreover  what  about  the  protein  composition  of  black  worms  and  bloodworms  compared  to  BHM.
 
 I  hope  you  are  not  mad  with  me  asking  so  many  silly  questions.

 Abhishek,
 
 During  initial  keeping  stage  of  this  beautiful  fish,  it  makes  more  sense  to  look  &  observe  them.  Frankly  speaking,  it  will  take  me  some  months  to  say  they  have  'truly'  settled  in  my  tank.  Breeding  at  this  stage  is  too  early  to  be  considered,  also  these  require  more  time  to  adjust  them  in  captivity  &  breeding  is  long  way  to  go  (not  many  successful  reports  about  their  breeding  in  captivity).
 
 These  will  not  be  forced  for  daily  WCs  simply  due  to  pH  balance  to  be  maintained.  Hence,  preferring  dry  food  like  FBW  to  them  at  this  stage.  Though  have  couple  of  2217s  running  their  tank,  would  not  be  thinking  of  feeding  BHM  so  early  which  will  foul  water  quality.
 
 I  offer  our  captive  bred  discus  (small-sized)  multiple  WCs  just  because  to  grow  them  faster,  even  BDs  are  getting  only  2  WCs  per  day  now  (averaging  3"+  size).
 No  worries  at  all  my  friend,  keep  shooting  your  questions.  Smile

 Yesterday  had  their  first  water-change,  removed  all  almond  leaves  as  the  water  was  becoming  too  black  due  to  leached  tannins.
 Also  got  rid  of  big  wood  pieces  to  free-up  their  swimming  area.

 They  seem  hungry  all  the  time,  have  also  started  eating  BHM.  Really  go  after  live  earthworms  dropped  &  rip  it  apart  while  eating.  Wild  aggression  could  be  seen  then,  will  post  videoclip  of  this  soon.

 Yogesh,  
 
 These  discus  looks  well  set  in  your  tank  ,  do  you  still  maintain  the  Ph  or  our  Mumbai  water  is  perfectly  fit  for  them  .  
 
 
 Thanks

 This  is  phenominal  Yogesh...Now  I  suppose  you  won't  say  that  they  would  take  a  few  more  months  to  get  settled...  Chuckle.
 
 But  I  must  say  man  get  more  of  them...atleast  5  to  6  more..It  would  be  sensational  to  see  the  wilds  schooling  all  together..
 
 Keep  us  posted..

 Hi  Shiva,
 
 First  few  months,  I'm  not  going  to  play  around  with  pH.  Actually  I  shifted  them  all  to  different  tank  yesterday  using  50%  old  tankwater.  Added  mixture  of  RO  &  fresh  tapwater  so  that  total-water  reading  was  around  6pH.  Will  be  gradually  acclimatizing  them  from  6pH>>6.5>>7pH   so  that  this  pH  balance  circus  should  not  be  worrying  factor  in  future.

 Haha  Abhi...NKS  still  has  3pcs  of  RSGs  left  which  I  have  requested  Rick  to  reserve  for  me  if  possible.  No  idea  if  anymore  are  coming  in  his  tomorrow's  or  next  week's  shipment  as  WC  season  is  already  well  &  truly  over.  Smile

 Thanks  buddy.  As  I  updated  in  other  thread  earlier,  WCDs  rarely  hit  local  market  there  this  season  due  to  high  mortality  rate.
 So  would  prefer  to  wait  until  next  season  to  check  with  Gan  or  NKS  by  end  of  this  year.

 Vaibhav,  i  think  you  misjudged  it  because  of  low  lighting  in  the  mentioned  video.  The  WCs  are  too  good  in  size(width  especially)  and  the  way  their  pattern  is  organized.  I  would  suggest  you  to  google  for  WC  discus  in  order  to  get  an  idea.  My  favs  are  RSG.
