Default rescaped my discus biotope

removed the cypress and added more manzanita. went with more horizontal branches. it's a pain getting my hand through the wood to vacuum the sand but my fish love it.

Very nice!
what size is it and did you get your discus locally? they are awesome looking specimens.

I live west of you and finding quality is hard around this area.

yeah I hear you. the only nice discus I've seen around here is at Living Sea in Park Ridge, but they want 300.00 each and they were domestics. I got mine from snookn21 in Florida. he is a sponsor at simplydiscus.com. he only sells wilds and has his fish listed on aquabid.

I got m first batch from Chris Z from windycity again on simply and gcca

They want a fortune for them around here, I havnt gone further east then aquarium adventures due to location of me, but I can get as far south as aurora, north as richmond, west as rockford.
I ordered them from chris, discusmadness.com and hawaiidiscus.com

nov. 7th is the next gcca swap in naperville. Im trying to take some discus,half wild angels, plants and pangio oblongas there IF I have the livestock in time.

is that his handle on aquabid as well? they are very nice fish and am in the market for 2-4 more.
