Default Enter the Heckels!

Hello... I am back with a discus tank after a short venture into tangans. Initially sold the tangans as I was expecting to relocate overseas but didn't happen in the end. Cut a long story short - decided to go back into discus but something that I have not tried before - heckels!

The good news is that the wild discus season is a little longer this year and there are still quality discus available at this time. Manage to grab a box of them home on Saturday from JZX with the help of some bros. So they are now stable but yet to be conditioned after a long flight from Brazil - so pardon the torn fins and scratches.

Here are some pictures of them. Lighting is still a little dim to help them settle in.

Some individual shots:

Both sides of the same piece...




Another one... considered blue moon?



Another..



Couple...



Group Shot:





Tank shot - very happy that they are stable and now schooling left and right. Initial days they were just huddled in a corner.







Thanks and sorry for the photo spam!
