    Hi everybody. I have been in the fish keeping hobby for about 35 years. I have recently started with discus for the very first time and I simply love these fish. Started with a group of 4 pigeon bloods. I will be going through the talks on discus in general.

    Welcome Gilroy - long stretch before having Discus! I also intend to keep them at some point so look forward to hearing your own experiences.

    Hi @GilroyD ! Welcome and please post some pics :thumbup:

    @TheGrissom and @jabula 7749 are also in PE, there may be others too that could connect you with local breeders?

    Hello and Welcome Gilroy.

    We have a aquarium club that meets the last Saturday of each month at Verkenner school at 14:00. I know at least one member that currently has discus fry and I know of a few that keep discus - it may be worth your while to attend this coming Saturdays meeting. Unfortunately I will be unable to attend this time around.
