Do you have 8 of them in a 72 gallon tank?
i have the 8 in te 72 right now to try to mate them and once i get a pair r two i have two 29 gallon tanks for them to mate in plus a 55for the fry thats why it is so overcrowded right nowIsabella said:Wow, you must have LOTS of water changes to perform with 8 Discus in a 72 gallon tank. Are you thinking perhaps of getting a larger tank for them? No offense, but I think it's overcrowded - taking into account how large Discus get and how perfect a water they need. I would personally get at least a 125 gallon tank for this many Discus. Anyway, your fish are absolutely beautiful.
my ph is around 6 and i keep my discus with cardinal tetras and glowlite tetras thats it and a golden nugget pleco to keep the tank clean i have alot of driftwood that helps the h and the hardness of the water low.. what kind of filter do u have on your tank i have a fluval 405 canister with carbon pre filter and peat moss that also helps the hardness and the ph. get back to me ill try to help out all i can.lee said:hi joe,
do you keep anything else in your tanks as company or are you strictly discus i have 6 discus in a 50 gallon tank and some clown loaches.
can you also tell me what ph you prefer as mine is quite low but i dont want to go messing with it too much
i keep losing my discus too (four now) they just keep slowing down, head for the filter inlet until they get sucked on and i try to move them away but they keep coming back to that spot after that they are certainly dead in the morning
ps they dont lose colour before they die
hope you can help thanks
