Um, yes I did. Like I said in my last sentence before, GO LOOK IN YOUR OTHER THREAD. located here :Discus leaning over not eating

Edit : And I'm not trying to kill this hobby, but you are doing a good job of it all on your own.

Maybe the reason your mediocre looking fish are "thriving" is because your puting them in an ugly bare bottom with nothing in it. Maybe you need to replace all of those minerals because your stupid enough not to add plants, substrate and extra trace elements to the water. What do your discus do when they want to rest? Go hide behind the sponge filter? its people like you who should do research before you get a fish.


Now I meant none of that. I respect that people use barebottoms to keep the tank clean and to keep the focus on the fish. Every tank is different. We are not here to bash and rip on people, see how mad and frustrated you got from reading this post? Should I have maybe gone with a more positive route and used facts as to why you should consider my OPINION. There are multiple ways to successfully keep the same fish. One person does not have all the answers.


If this continues I will shut down this thread that was just intended for showing pictures of your discus. Give advice on another thread, and please make it positive.

Edit: After reading your post off mine I would like to clear things up.
1. They did recommend a quarantine but mine was occupied by some beat up african cichlids.
2. At the time my fish were hit by disease, I was doing biweekly 50% wcs.
3. I admit now that my tank was overcrowded and I waited to long to fix it.
4. The discus code wasn't sold at the store of who recommended it. I had to order it off line.

First off, I know what you intended right from the start. Secondly, if you go to the other thread, the op is asking for advice, but then goes on to say "that's how we do it here". So is he really looking or just blowing smoke ? Third, I can see where you were going with that and here's the explanation behind it. It's all education. Should any of your points had come up, that picture is the very first step in proper care of new fish. It's a QT for recent a recent purchase and most (as you may know) haven't do e the proper research and wind up posting, "my fish died" "what happened" "sick fish", etc. I, along with others, are trying to educate and help, but when you come claiming. You want help and snub your nose when it arrives, we both know what the outcome is.

Spot on my dear friend. When i came here i was looking for info and that i will get as time passes. I hope that more and more people get into discus and experience this joy. Wonderful fish. I will try and improve its repo. nay sayers will be naysayers. The fish are not that delicate. They survive and thrive. Hope i can keep posting their pics for at least a month. Their eyes are clouded. We only have meth blue here.
New fish will be imported in may. Maybe i can get better ones then. Loving this fish.
