Ah..you know, Joe, I'm only interested with diamond tetras as the tankmates for discus. Add cardinal tetras to that and I'll drool.:crazy:
Hi blue_gourami.blue_gourami45 said:I don't know the answer to your last question, but have to say I am surprised to read about Discus being kept with tetras. Although I know very little about discus fish, are they not cichlids? I suppose if it is alright to keep them with tetras then they must be non-aggressive. Also, I know they are very gorgeous fish (the Discus); are they not picky as well, re: heat, ph and such? Just wondering Would love to have some but have not been willing to sacrafice the $$ for them, as they are quite an 'elite' fish and I know they do not come cheaply.
Joe, it's not that bad to try. Anybody else can try as long as you can maintain the tank well.joeshmoe said:Thanks for the help guys! I was beging to think that im not fit for discus but blue said there not as hard as every body says. I think I can do it
You don't necessarily need to clean daily. Every other day is ok. It really depends on how heavily stocked your tank is.joeshmoe said:ok three things: do need four discus for them not to fight? should i keep other fish with them and do i need to clean the tan every day?!
:blink: You'll need 55 gallons minimum for 4-6 discus, not 30 gallons.blue_gourami45 said:No kidding. And thanks, Blue I was at work tonight at the fish store where I work part time, and I saw a 30 gallon hexagon for $90.Canadian (about $65 US), and I also get a discount, so seriously thinking about obtaining yet ANOTHER aquarium; I think it is a good deal. I just need a stand for it (will purchase a filter, heater and substrate also, of course). :wink: And perhaps I can try Discus! And........will even try "cycling" the tank without the 'chemicals', which will be a big first for me. I have always used the biological supplements, with no fish loss, but since joining the Forum have discovered that supplements like Cycle are not for the fish.
Mixed strains I suppose. Show-quality discus don't come in cheap.joeshmoe said:lol ok ok 1 MORE Q what does mixed discus mean? cuz there very cheap
Maximum size of one species which is Corydoras aeneus=6-7 cmtrreherd said:how large do cory cats get?
