    They are a lot more demanding than most fish. Cuddles and Bubbles cost me $50 each......

    Lots of research and good maintenance is the key to keeping discus, also you would want to get them from a local breeder and find out what kind of water they are being kept in. Most of mine were from a local breeder and kept in plain ol tap water with a PH o7.5 and a GH of 8. Cuddles and Bubbles were in a PH of 6 and I cant remember the GH but I did bag them with enough water so that I could do like a 2 hour acclimation on them....

    yup, getting healthy discus for the gate is a must, other wise you will have a very sick discus in like 6 months.

    There are some Richmond breeder on CL at times. Also locally you can watch/observe them before purchase.
