 Hi,
 
 Was  surprised  to  find  that  a  guy  in  my  neighbourhood  was  dealing  in  discus  as  a  wholesaler  (very  unlikely  for  Delhi  due  to  extreme  temp).  Well,  rushed  their  to  pick  up  some  for  myself  and  to  my  utter  disappointment  found  everything  has  already  been  sold  except  these  8  little  mismatched  (due  to  size)  SUNSHINE  or  yellow  crystal  babies,  which  nobody  wanted.
 
 They  were  very  dull  in  a  tank  with  pathetic  water  conditions.  were  being  fed  dry  tubifex  and  looked  like  would  only  survive  for  a  little  while  longer.  So  I  decided  to  rescue  and  raise  them  up  in  a  spare  24"x28"x28"  tank  at  home.
 
 now  they  are  being  fed  BHM  with  70/30  ratio  of  heart  and  liver  6  times  a  day.  With  20%  WC  in  the  noon  and  100%  WC  at  night  after  the  final  feeding  for  the  day.
 
 I  will  keep  updating  this  thread  every  now  and  then  with  their  progress  report  and  pics.  Invaluable  suggestions  and  inputs  from  fellow  IAH  members  about  this  effort  is  much  appreciated.
 
 Thanks  
 Happy  fishing
 
 PS:  sorry  for  the  poor  pic  quality  and  water  marks  on  the  tank  glass.  next  one  will  be  a  better  update.

 Whats  your  tank  temp?  Why  are  you  feeding  them  Beef  Heart  mixed  with  liver,  I  mean  why  the  liver?  Just  curious  whats  the  advantage?
 How  are  you  doing  wc  do  you  have  stored  water  somewhere  or  from  tap  directly?

 Hi  Nanu,
 
 The  temp  is  set  constant  to  28deg  celcius.  I  do  have  storage  where  water  stays  for  two  days  before  being  put  in  the  tank  but  I  also  have  hypo  crystals  and  for  this  tank  I  have  been  using  them  before  introducing  the  water  in  the  tank.
 
 Well  I  added  liver  for  two  reasons:  1)  its  a  great  source  of  nutrients.  2)  its  a  recipe  as  told  by  the  maestro  Shiva  Nair  for  discus  babies  (though  he  mentioned  pork  hearth  and  liver).  
 
 But  liver  pollutes  the  water  very  quickly  so  I  try  to  do  a  partial  WC  after  every  mail  and  then  100%  after  the  last  meal.
 
 Regards

 Good  luck  Rahul.
 Last  time  I  saw  real  sunshine  discus  was  at  Neil  Mandevia's  place  many  years  back.  Man  those  were  really  bright  yellow.
 
 My  2  cents  advice  -  Avoid  feeding  Tetrabits,  Hikari  biogold  or  any  other  dry  food  containing  Astaxanthin  if  you  are  looking  forward  for  real  sunshine  colour.  Just  raise  them  on  pure  BHM  diet.

 Hi  guys,
 
 its  time  for  monthly  update.  Its  been  a  month  since  I  adopted  these  babies.  After  a  month  of  100%  WC  every  day  and  a  solid  diet  of  BHM.  They  are  growing  up.  Out  of  8,  six  are  over  2.5"  and  2  have  slower  rate  of  growth.  They  will  be  shifted  to  a  tank  of  their  own  soon  for  faster  growth.
 
 have  been  feeding  them  only  BHM  as  suggested  by  Yogesh.  Today  will  prepare  PHM  for  them.  Will  update  you  guys  again  soon.  Meanwhile,  here  are  some  pics.
