Thanks for the reply's!

I have to agree with plantedtankdude. They are not as bad as some people make them out to be, but they do require dedication and time. I also feel that with all the captive bread fish out there makes them less sensitive to PH/water parameters, but just my personal feelings.
I do 30% water changes daily which some may think is not enough and some may think its overkill.. Lol, I have the time and takes me 15minutes and is worth it to me and my fish..

I have always had heavily planted Discus tanks, this is my first BBT and man, I LOVE IT!! So easy to keep clean, more water in tank and is just soooo clean!!

I don't want to post where I bought them as they were a mess when I received them. But it was via a website. furious

I plan on getting a few more once I get a bigger tank, and will be buying from Kenny's Discus.

They eat a lot on weekends as I am around to feed at will.
On weekdays before work and a few times when I get home.

They love a Beefheart mix with some flake food as a binder. They also feast on Mysis Shrimp and flake foods.

Ya, it puts stress on the tank, that and one good bump and it is down.
But if it works for you...... But I would never do it.........

You can slap a piece of ply wood cut to fit on it and 4 dorky 2x4 legs and you are good. But a stand that fits cant be beat!

I am a major klutz and have kids, stuff needs to be sturdy in my house rolling eye
