It totally depends upon your fish, their size, tank size, filtration, what you feed, how much you feed, your goals, etc. There are lots of people who just like to "collect" discus and want to grow them out as big as possible, as fast as possible. They'll feed 6-8 times a day and change 90-100% of the water every day, but their end goal is just to have huge fish to stick in bare tanks and stare at. My guys grow like weeds with 3-4 feedings a day and a few decent water changes a week, and I'm perfectly happy with that.
My Goals would simply be to have some lovely fish in my aquarium so that I could stare at them peacefully at the end of a long day and lose my stress in their serenity.
I was doing - 70% water changes each day on my aquarium for quite awhile but it was only a 60 gallon tank. How large of a tank do you have these guys in? I mean, 30 gallons a day I could do but 60+ gallons? I'd rather not. lol Guess I will have to enjoy them through your pictures. HOpefully you will be posting a lot. Video wouldn't hurt either. (hint hint)
