Alot of time and money, to get it to this level and i'm still working on it. Next is a hood to cover the lighting and top of the tank. Dad (Warren) helped with the building of the stand for the tank.

Yep you guessed it. They are discus.

Rhea & Aphrodite are both Red Turquoise Discus. About 8cm length

Themis & Oceanus are both Pearl Pigeon Discus. About 9-10cm length

Apollo is a Brown Turquoise Discus. About 9cm length

Poseidon is an Yellow faced Red Melon Discus. About 10-11cm length

Hera is a Pigeon Blood Discus (clean ie. no peppering). About 17cm length

Hermes is a Leopard Discus. About 15-16cm length

I also have a 9th but no photos, its a small Brown Snakeskin Discus. About 5-6cm length.

They live with 20 lemon tetras, 2 rummynose & 6 small Bristlenose catfish (1 common, 5 albino). The tank is 4ftx2ftx2ft with an Aqua One CF1200 (1200lph) canister & an Eheim 2217 (1000lph) canister. As for plants I have 3 big anubias, 5 small anubias nana & 2 bunched of Ambulia. All lighted with a 4ft T5HE light (i went with High Efficency rather than the High Output to keep my electricity bill in check).

They are all undersized according to NSW Fisheries (Flounder & Sole Flounders and Soles 25cm) Better throw them back in Lake Illawarra on Saturday!

Wow, quite a collection! we have a 5foot tank with about 15 mixed tropicals in there and 2 x bristlenose also. We have heaps of fun with them. Quite expressive little bunch. Nothing as fancy as the discus though.

Battery powered Eheim Auto Fish Feeder stocked with Sera Discus pellets.

The batteries are good for 30days but if its just a weekend away I dont bother because Discus are known for going on 1-2week fasts so 2days is nothing for them.
