weather loach will be removed tomorrow.
And, do you know of any fish, not aggressive, and that becomes of decent size that will do well with discus ?
T5 probably means HO tubes, and two of these assuming they are 48-inches over a 5-foot tank is more than enough. I wouldn't have that much. My 5-foot 115g has two T8 48-inch tubes, with floating plants. I tried a dual T5 when my old fixture gave out, but it was far too bright. I expected the fish to be asking me for sunglasses. After a week, it went back for a T8. A knifefish will find this highly stressful. As for the discus, how can we tell they "like" this or that? We can't. We give them the best environment we can, replicating their natural habitat, and can then be satisfied they will be healthier. Fish suitable for discus are in the profiles.
