 @  Suman:  thanks.
 
 @Muda:  Will  look  forward  to  you  dropping  by  with  the  shrimps  :)
 
 @  rocky,  scorpio,  Abhis:  Thanks  guys.
 
 @indianhotriff:  All  are  doing  great  here  except  one  of  the  BT  guys.  They  are  a  great  lot.
 
 @Shiva:  That  particular  guy  is  permanently  close  to  black!  He  is  also  staying  away  from  the  others  and  does  not  eat  enthusiatically,  only  minimally.

 Hey  Biswadeb,
 
 Nice  pieces  of  discus  you  have  there,  who  better  to  guide  you  than  Shiva  himself.     Thumbs Up  
 
 Follow  his  advice  and  am  sure  you  would  become  a  Pro  at  discus  keeping.
 
 
 
 Tc,  Cheers  !!!           Drinking

 @  ashwin:  I  am  so  grateful  to  have  got  the  stock  from  Shiva  as  well  as  getting  advice  and  all  the  support.  After  reading  through  this  forum  intensively,  i  was  absolutely  sure  that  i  must  order  my  discus  from  him.
 
 @vaibhav:  I  have  not  mixed  the  discus  with  my  other  fish  as  my  main  display  planted  tank  is  in  another  room,  while  the  discus  which  came  in  the  same  batch  are  in  my  fish  room.  I  have  not  added  new  fish  from  any  other  source  or  added  them  to  any  of  my  existing  fish  tanks.  Besides  i  cleaned  my  tank  thorougly  with  salt  and  used  2  cycled  filters.  My  fishroom  presently  consists  of  only  a  few  Kribensis  which  i  picked  up  from  a  friend  and  raised  them.  So  it  did  not  require  to  be  quarantined,  also  knowing  shiva's  reputation  and  stock  i  did  not  require  to.
 
 You  can  see  the  procedure  that  i  have  followed  as  it  is  already  mentioned  in  my  first  post  in  detail.

 You  had  gone  wrong  at  2  places  ,  1st  thing  you  should  have   qurantine  your  disucs  wheather  you  get  it  from  good  source  or  other.
 
 2nd  :-Feeding  should  have  to  be  done  on  much  later  stage  when  discus  gets  setteled  ,  here  setteled  means  just  not  eating  food  eagerly,  but  they  should  get  used  to  PH  level  ,  to  you  ,feeding   time  (depends  what  time  shiva  sir  use  to  feed  the  discus).  All  these  minute  things  are  also  important.
 
 Reasons  for  qurantine;-  While  netting  the  discus  some  part  of  their  body  slime  (very  thin  skin)  also  gets  damaged,  also  they  get  bang  to  various  object  or  tank  mets  in  the  tank  which  cause  minor  injury,  which  later  converts  into  stress  and  discus  turns  dark  (i  think  this  also  can  be  the  reason  for  your  discus  turning  dark)
 
 So  qurantine  is  must,  as  well  as  the  fishes  get  starved  for  few  days  so  you  can  start  feeding  as  per  your  conviniance  ,  basically  start  a  new  habbit  for  you  discus.
 
 I  may  be  wrong  experts  can  put  some  light  on  this  issues  "COMPULSARY  QURANTINE"

 @Vaibhav  &  Rahul,  I  am  sorry  for  my  Ignorance,  but  i  was  under  the  impression  that  you  quarantine  the  fish  before  adding  the  new  batch  of  fish  to  an  existing  batch.  Am  i  wrong  on  that?  Also,  I  had  waited  till  evening  to  feed  the  fish,  I  gave  them  about  5  hours  roughly.  Was  that  too  soon.  Thanks  for  the  corrections.
 
 @Hamza,  Dude  fishroom  is  doing  well  and  is  busy  because  of  this  new  addition.  No  i  couldnt  work  out  the  Tropheus  as  i  was  not  getting  what  i  wanted  and  the  ones  being  offered  were  too  expensive.  Will  be  busy  with  my  discus  during  the  time  being.  Dude  do  drop  by  sometime.  It  would  be  great  if  you  could  get  your  camera  along..  Smile  
 
 p.s.  I  dont  think  i  should  mention  about  my  planted  tank  after  seeing  your  creation.   Oops

 Sure  mate...will  see  you  this  sunday  evening.  Is  that  time  ok  for  you?
 
 And  about  planted  tank...dont  underestimate  your  tank,  you  laid  down  the  scape  well  initially.  Just  carry  on  with  a  little  hardwork(trimming  and  maintaining  cycle),  it  should  look  properly  good.

 I  regret  to  tell  all  of  you  that  Monday  morning  was  today  sadder  than  it  already  is  with  the  morning  blues,  I  found  the  BT  guy  who  was  unwell  and  black  on  the  floor  all  dry,  must  have  jumped  out  at  night.  The  last  few  days  he  looked  better  so  was  hoping  for  a  full  recovery  from  him.  Did  not  expect  this  in  the  slightest.   Crying or Very sad  
 
 All  the  others  seem  to  be  doing  well.  Will  post  updated  pictures  soon.
 
 @  Hamza,  Have  you  changed  your  number,  i  msged  u  on  fri  and  then  tried  calling  you  yesterday,  couldnt  get  through.

 Discus  are  good  jumper  ,  hence  it  is  advisible  to  keep  water  level   3  inch  below  the  top  level  .  Also  try  to  keep  your  tank  covered  .  
 
 Thanks

 All  the  other  discus  seem  to  be  doing  well  as  far  as  my  experience  tells  me  (...which  i  must  tell  you  is  sad  when  it  comes  to  discus)  
 
 Sooo,  would  require  all  your  views,  comments  and  suggestions  as  always  :)
 
 The  discus  have  just  eaten,  and  you  may  find  them  a  little  rounded...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I  must  say,  that  to  me  the  colour  and  size  seem  to  have  increased  well  since  my  last  pics  were  taken,  (about  3  weeks  now)  
 
 I  would  like  to  know  whether  it  has  been  a  good  increase  or  should  i  aim  for  higher.
 
 feeding  continues  6  times  as  usual  (2  times  BHM,  4  times  tetra  bits  and  hikari  discus  bio  gold.)
 
 Water  changes  of  twice  a  day  50%  weekdays,  weekends  at  twice  a  day  70%.
 
 Apart  from  the  existing  filtration  i  have  also  added  an  aerator.
 
 p.s.-  Again  im  sorry  for  the  low  quality  phone  pics.

 They  are  looking  very  good  to  grow  as  beauties,  Biswadeb.
 Your  tank  looks  really  clean  &  I  really  appreciate  discus-keepers  disciplined  about  daily  water-changes.  Smile  
 Going  really  well  with  discus,  keep  it  up!!  Thumb Up
