    Adopted Discus!

    Post by williemcd on Sat Nov 24, 2012 2:22 pm

    Sorry I've been AWOL for a bit.. Too many incidents to cover on here. (Tornado hit my parents house, uncle died, Sister died, fish-room crash and big tv blew out due to the crash)..
    But.. About 6 weeks ago I was asked if I would adopt some Cobalt Discus breeders! About the size of a softball!!!!! They don't look anything like any cobalts I've seen in pics but they were pretty stressed out when I picked them up. The color is filling in as each week goes by. They are inhabiting a 155G w/ 6 Scorpion discus and 6 leopard veil tail angels... fully planted of course. I know, I should and will be pulling the Angels as soon as my breeding tanks are set up. The silver and gold angels have been pulled since this photo. The cobal is behind them.

    Yup standard issue cobalt, well what they are calling cobalt now.... cobalt's used to be a lot better looking then they are now.
    They look a little stunted but with good care they should get to dinner plate size Very Happy

    Wow you havent had very good luck, sorry for your losses Sad
