    Not that I know a thing about discus, but they do look a handsome shoal ! So does their colour change quite a bit as they mature ?

    No. It's the Hungarian breeders adult. All of the fish Marco imported come from 3 separate spawnings of 3 pairs. I'm fairly sure I have a good mix from the 3 batches.

    Sean do you have some floating plants? If so chuck some in because the cover/shade will help them to relax.

    I have a bunch of floating plants. I'll moer some in now.

    I am really loving these fish. It's the first time I've ever kept such small discus, but they really are cool fish. Can't wait to see them in their big fish colours!! (IE: When they're big)
