Im moving interstate soon. What is the best way to restart a heavily planted discus tank? I'm a little wary about stocking the tank with plants, starting the C02, and chucking 8 6inch discus straight in, but I don't see many other options.
So the options I have come up with are:
1. Start the tank with only the fish and substrate, and plant it later after the cycle has finished with low lighting. But that would be about 2 months as it 180 gallon.
2. Start the tank fully planted with no fish, Co2
, and ferts, slowly adding fish. But then what do I do with the discus?
