Iíve had Rainbowfish for years and after loosing a few of my bigger ones, Iím looking at moving onto something else.
Iím after advice and tank inspiration for Discus.
Tank is 6 x 2 x 2.5 (iirc) so a fair size. 2 x Aqua One 2700 running on it so should be adequate filtration.
Iíve researched as much as possible and seem to see that 28-30įc and around a 7.2pH is ideal - is this correct and how would they go at a slightly higher PH (our tap water is 7.4-7.6pH. I can use buffers and pH correctors but would like to keep that as minimal as possible.
Can anyone share photos of their discus tanks! I would like to keep it pretty minimal and as few plants as possible (the rainbow tank is currently fairly planted but Iím over them now) with preferably small, slow growing plant varieties.
I have small brown gravel currently and would like to keep that if possible, but can change to sand if needed.
Not going to be co2
injected so ph and temp should stay fairly consistent.
Is there anything major Iím missing? Tank maintenance and water quality isnít really a concern, currently doing a 25-40% water change weekly as is.
All help, advice and tank shots would be greatly appreciated!
