No I;m keeping the discus just set up another tank bit smaller but it'll be just for them and I'll be doing regular bigger water changes in it. Just waiting for it to cycle

Theyre not boring I love my discus and the set up its just that to complete the set up the way I;d want it I;d want another 4 or so large discus and I simply dont have the cash anymore since I;ve been single hence changing it to oscars and a fire eel etc.

The actual discus are cool fish and pretty tame in the way that they feed. I;m actually keeping the discus just in a smaller tank and one where I can actually do like a 30 per cent change of water every day or so
