    Yes it is. This fish will grow to an adult size of over 20lbs. And will also eat any fish you throw at it. Hes a real Bruiser jur4ik

    ah.. now i understand what Bruiser means
    do you have a tank that is big enough for this fisch? or what will you do when he´ll grow to his adult size?

    Yes, I do have many tanks. When he is large enough to defend himself he will reside in a 300G monster fish tank. Ive been keeping Peacocks for over 20 years, I have plenty of experience with them.

    This little guy is only 4 months old, how fast he grows depends on how much he gets fed. Right now I only feed once a day to keep him from stunting. Then I will feed every other day with larger shiners as he begins to develop.

    can you give me some examples?
    the point i´m worried about is that i´ll need to feed the discus minimum twice a day as i didnt want to buy adult discus and the whole food waste will destroy every carpet :-SS

    thanks a lot orlando, this is a really good journal. well i´m still unsure about discus - discus are beautiful animals and i´m not sure about what i want: do i want to make many different scapes or do i want to keep healthy discus?!
    actually i´m thinking about a second tank - a smaller one, just for aquascaping - then there will be a happy end :)
