what  is  so  much  in  wild  caught  discus,,,is  there  any  difference  in  keeping                

 Other  than  pH  balance,  only  substantial  difference  noticed  that  I  saved  my  efforts  for  daily  water-changes.  Chuckle

is  their  color  different  ,cause  i  find  their  pattern  similar  to  baby  torquise                

 You  are  correct.  Their  forehead  pattern  &  stressbars  do  look  similar  to  torquise.
 Not  the  body  color  though,  in  fact  I  can't  see  their  real  color  due  to  darkwater.  Sad

i  am  just  curious  to  know  ,  and  desperatly  waiting  to  see  them  full  size                

 I'm  also  desperate  to  see  them  full-size.
 You  live  in  Borivali  East,  don't  you??
 Once  they  are  grown,  drop  for  a  visit  on  Western  side  to  see  them  in  real.

 Hi  Ramesh,
 
 Though  all  of  our  current-generation  domesticated  strains  have  little  bit  of  wild  genes,  it  doesn't  make  them  wild-caught.  WCs  are  much-sensitive  to  water-conditions  and  are  used  to  acidic  water  as  low  as  5pH  or  even  less  (as  they  get  during  flooding  season  at  amazon).  During  shallow  water  season,  these  discus  are  caught  by  mesmerize  them  using  bright  lights.
 
 Your  discus  look  like  Turq  offshoots/crossed  to  me  but  beautiful  shape  &  bunch  none  the  less.  Thumb Up

 Thanks  Betz,  Kiran,  Vivek  &  Rohan.
 
 They  have  already  started  eating  BHM  alongwith  FBW,  also  offer  them  live  earthworms  occasionally  (not  required  any  chopping,  they  are  good  choppers  themselves  Chuckle  ).  
 Barebottom  tank  really  helps  siphoning  out  all  poop  accumulated  during  day  on  a  regular  basis  &  ammonia  under  check.

 Yogi,
 
 I  have  done  some  experiment  while  feeding  earthworms  and  you  can  try  this  out!!!
 
 In  earlier  earthworm  thread  Shiva  has  given  a  suggested  to  put  the  earthworms  on  paper  for  2  to  4  hours.  It  is  a  very  good  idea  but  I  have  seen  some  drawbacks  in  this  method  (In  my  view).
 
 1. Firstly  earthworms  will  run  here  and  there  and  needs  to  be  keep  eye  on  them.
 2. After  sometime  earthworms  start  draining   out  and  they  will  lost  the  moisture.
 3. News  paper  has  a  chemical  composites  and  may  be  not  hygienic  to  the  fishes.
 4. 2  to  4  hours  without  moisture  earthworms  will  lose  proteins.
 5. For  big  earthworms  catching  and  chopping  is  a  tedious  job.
 
 To  avoid  above  I  am  keeping  the  earthworms  in  mug  of  water  for  around  5  to  6  hours.  Earthworms  can  live  in  water  for  one  day  and  remain  intact.  Within  the  time  earthworm  will  extract  all  the  garbage  and  you  can  chop  the  earthworms  by  scissor  in  the  mug  with  water  in  that.
 
 This  is  only  my  view  and  may  be  helpful  to  you  guys.
 
 Cheers,
 
 Kiran

 Don't  have  time  &  patience  either  looking  at  them  2-3  hours  so  they  don't  run  here  &  there.  Chuckle  
 Rest  assured  they  are  well-cleaned  before  feeding.
 
 Some  more  snaps  from  last  night.

 Kiran  
 
 Read  the  below  post  on  earthworm  carefully  ,  you  need  to  put  these  earthworms  on   paper  pieces  in  box  (  for  1  hr  )   and  not  on  plain  news  paper.
 Keeping   them  in  water  for  4  hrs  ,  makes   their  body  sticky  and  discus  may  take  more  time  to  consume   it  or  sometimes  refuse  to  eat  it  .
