I thought they looked absolutely stunning.

Discus are fantastic. I watch mine for hours of an evening. A bit more work and feeding than your regular fish and generally need softer water (Stendkers are bred in harder water) but very worth it in my opinion. I love the stunted ones I have as well!
Discus, Corydoras, Loracaridinae, Dwarf Cichlids.
