 hey,  those  are  beautiful  ones......  me  too  pretty  new,  have  more  than  i  culd  balance  on  my  plate...   Chuckle  
 but  i  love  my  discus.  still  browsing  the  discus  forum,  wanted  to  know,  what  kind  of  filter  u  are  using  and  how  often  do  u  change  the  water  and  till  what  percentage?
 
 Im  jiten,  from  bombay  and  just  few  months  old  in  this  hobby,  this  april.  i  realised,  how  i  have  been  duped  at  many  stores,  right  from  the  tank's  to  gravels,  to  the  filter  pipe,  to  filters  and  especially  the  fishes...  LOL.....  i  have  errrrr.....  6  tanks.  GAWD,  i  didnt  realise  that  i  have  so  many.  and  three  small  jars,  for  bettas  and  one  big  bowl  for  a  gourami.  newaz,  have  to  introduce  myself,  so  will  give  details  of  the  various  fishes  i  have.
 
 As  for  now,  i  have  a  3  feet  long,  12  inches  width,  18  inches  height  and  in  this  tank  i  have  two  5  to  5.5  inches  discus  and  they  are  surely  a  breeding  pair,  dont  know  their  excat  names,  but  i  have  others  also  in  the  tank,  hence,  i  guess  it  wont  happen  untill  i  get  them  a  new  tank.  the  other  discus  that  i  have  are  of  various  size's.  the  smallest  are  not  even  an  inch  (from  lip  to  mouth)  they  are  from  the  parents  of  red  maps.  and  then  again  i  have  two  others,  atleast  2.5  inches  (lip  to  tail),  which  the  seller  told,  they  would  turn  out  to  be  red  mellon,  but  now  i  have  my  doubts.  to  add  to  them  i  have  four  more,  of  sizes  from  2  inches  to  2.5  inches.  i  am  not  sure  what  they  would  turn  out  to  be.  
 
 I  realized  about  my  passion  for  discus  fishes  and  in  these  few  months,  realized  that  getting  the  younger  ones  are  what  really  makes  me  excited.  As  now,  each  day,  i  look  at  the  younger  ones  and  see  how  they  are  growing  and  simply  love  this  whole  process.  
 
 Im  not  sure,  how  long  they  would  take  to  grow  to  their  actual  size,  however,  i  have  changed  the  food  so  many  time  since  i  have  started.  I  was  feeding  dem,  dired  blood  worms.  later,  tetra  bits,  now  tetraveg  and  hitkari's  bio  gold.  lets  see,  wen  i  am  able  to  click  them  properly,  i  would  surely  post  the  pics  on  the  forum,
 
 Thanks  for  sharing  d  pics  of  your  discus  and  thanks  for  going  thorough  this  whole  email  of  mine     Thumb Up  
 
 best  regards

 Anyway  good  job  ...keep  it  up  ....
 
 Just  one  tips  keep  away  any  type  of  worms  for  feeding.
 
 Best  of  luck
