Thanks Chesh!!
Got to keep the wife happy
Since we talked last, I now have 7 planted tanks, and started breeding GBR, and GBR (golds)
Had to open part of the fishroom back up.

wow!! They are stunningly beautiful. What should all the water parameters be to raise discus properly, healthy, and safely? I really want to get into discus and I don't make any mistakes so any help would be great thank you. And again those discus are just beautiful.

I keep my wifes Discus in these water parameters.
Temp 84
KH 4
GH4
PH 6.4
Nitrates <5
Nitrites 0
Amm. 0
I do 3 75% water changes per week, probably overkill since the tank is heavily plante. But I want them in pristine water. They are fed a diet of bloodworms( frozen, and FD), FD blackworms, cichlid pellets, and Omega one flakes veggie, and cichlid. Their diet is supplemented with live foods from time to time when available.
