    I know they are difficult to keep. I think I was around 15 when I last tried and failed. A lot...

    No clue how long ago that was, but a lot has changed in discus keeping. Like altum angels, what were once considered finiicky, hard to keep animals are now within reach because the vast majority of animals are being bred in captivity. This means a few things, like feeding, is less of an issue. The animals will take prepared foods. They are fine in a wider range of water chemistry. I'm in the PA/NJ area, and I know several people who keep them in planted tanks with minimal 'extra' care, and there are several hobbyist breeders in the various local clubs as well as importers bringing in fish from Germany and elsewhere.

    Why it was a long time ago lol. About 25 years I guess. Sorry I ran out of fingers to calculate with.

    Ah good to know, thanks. I think when I kept them they only ate frozen foods, you had to prepare brine shrimp, water had to be upper 80s and perfect 7.0 pH

    They still need the warmer temp, but the rest will be dependent on the source, and can be 'fudged' a bit for the pH. :) If you're interested in really nice fish, both Discus R'Us and Discus Hans have excellent reputations.
