 Hi  Guys,
 
 I  have  seen  some  discus  in  a  nearby  LFS,  by  that  time  i  was  not  interested  in  buying  now  i  am  planning  to  keep  discus  fishes.  Before  buying  i  would  like  to  know  to  how  to  choose  a  discus.  I  am  planning  to  go  for  a  4x2x2  tank  with  12nos  of  2.5  inches  discus.
 
 What  is  Peppering?  I  noticed  in  lfs  many  discus  are  having  peppering.  Does  it  mean  that  we  should  not  buy  those  fishes  or  in  due  course  of  time  i  will  be  disappeared  when  they  settle  in  the  tank.  Throw  some  light  on  this  please  i  am  confused,
 
 I  am  looking  out  for  the  following  before  choosing  a  discus
 
 1.  Fish  is  active  or  not
 2.  Fins  not  clamped
 3.  Asking  the  lfs  guy  to  feed  some  food
 
 Anything  else  i  need  to  add.  Experts  comments  please
 
 Also  suggest  me  a  good  long  lasting  reliable  heater  (brand)  to  buy
 
 Thanks
 Kishore

 Hi  kishore  ,  before  start  why  don't  you  go  through  the   sticky  thread  by   yogesh.?
 The  source  of  the   fish  should  be  good  to  avoid  any   heartbeak  afterwards.  .
 Peppering  is  a  sign  of   stress  in  them  and  as  u  read  the  thread  then  you   will  know  the  reasons  for  stress  in  them.
   Read  as  much  as  you  can  and  post   your  doubts  and  there  are  so  many  experts  to  help  you  out.
 Raj

 Yes,  i  agree  with  you  raj.  Read  some  articles  here  in  iah  and  got  some  valuable  informations.  
 
 I  would  like  to  know  a  good  brand  to  buy  a  heater  also  suggest  me  a  
 
 good  auto  feeder  as  i  wont  be  able  to  feed  them  between  10am  to  7pm.  
 
 For  the  first  time  i  am  setting  the  tank  do  i  need  to  set  the  heater  to  any  particular  degrees?
 
 Thanks  Again
 Kishore

 Kishore  ,  first  you  check  the  water  parameter  .  Discus  needs  soft  acidic  water  .  Take  help  from  local  Chennai  guys  ,  they  will  guide  you  .
