How high of a temp are you keeping it? I keep my community tank, which includes discus, at 82° F. I have a L-018 Gold Nugget, L-204 Flash pleco, and an L-260 Queen Arabesque pleco in the same tank.

Not familiar with Farenheit.
So I'll use Celsius.:mrgreen: I have a BN thriving well in my discus tank with temp at 32 degrees Celsius.:)

Had to go back to using heater as November is getting colder until February.:blink:

No, my Discus tanks are 84-86 in the winter and much higher in the summer. That's what's worrying me about tankmates. Anything lower than that and my Discus all huddle around in little groups with their fins clamped and their bodies dark. They've been that way all along. They come from a local breeder here --and as you know, AZ is basically hell on earth so they were raised in really high temps.

I run the 125 at 84F all the time. Prevents disease and ich outbreaks. I think you all already know the contents of my tank.
Good to know Mike, THANKS!!!
