I am jealous. I'd love a tank full of wild discus (or even just wild type).

Sorry for taking so long to get back to this. My water universally is pretty much striaght R/o giving me a ph of about 6.5, hardness runs about 75ppm give or take a bit, my nitrates do tend to run a bit on the high side. The blues are in 100 gallon with a rena xp3 filters, the greens and heckels are in 60 gallon tanks with rena xp 2 filters, I feed these primarily live black worms alternating with frozen blood worms and a commercial flake food. I have had them just about a year.
