PostPosted: Sat Jul 19, 2014 10:24 am Post subject: New Discuss tank. Updated 13-Jan-2015-page 4 Reply with quote

 After  a  long  break  thought  of  restarting  my  fish  room  again.  So  the  first  addition  to  it  is  a  discuss  tank.  Ordered  some  nice  discuss  from  Shiva  and  got  those  beauties  last  week.  Currently  they  are  in  a  bare  bottom  tank  and  soon  I  will  upload  some  pics  of  those  beauties  (Thanks  to  Shiva).  
 
 The  discuss  tank  details:
 Size:  3X2X1.5  ft
 Hard  scape  material:  ADA  amazonia  and  decorative  sand  at  the  front,  Drift  wood  and  some  collection  rocks
 Light:  2  X  54W  T5HO  
 Filter:  DIY  Sump  kind,  23X15X18(H)  inch  with  a  1200  L/H  powerhead
 Plants:  Not  yet  decided  
 Fishes:  A  group  of  Discuss  +  some  cardinals  and  rummy  nose  +  lots  of  cherry  shrimps
 
 Here  are  few  pics  of  the  setup

 Good  luck  with  the  tank  and  your  new  Discuss  fish!  The  driftwood  on  the  left  in  particular  looks  amazing.  :)
 
 Btw,  is  that  the  sump  tank  on  the  right?

 The  protruding  wood  wouldn't  go  well  with  skittish  discus  initially.  If  I  were  you,  I'd  make  a  scape  with  all  the  woods  in  one  corner  with  ferns  and  keep  the  rest  of  the  tank  for  good  stem/carpet  plants.  Smile  would  be  eager  to  see  new  discus  pics.  
 
 Cheers,

 Hey  Prasantha,  congratulations  on  getting  discus.  Looks  like  we  received  our  shipment  on  the  same  day.  How  is  your  discuss  doing?  Awaiting  for  more  details  and  photos  of  your  beauties.  All  the  best  with  your  discus  tank.
 
 Regards,
 Abhishek

 @Karthik:  As  per  my  understanding  Discuss  are  bottom  feeder  so  I  don't  like  a  carpet  and  hench  the  empty  place  at  the  front.  Also  the  water  temp  would  be  29/30  degree  so  I  doubt  if  some  good  carpet  can  sustain  that  temp!!!
 
 @Abhishek,  Abhi  and  Abhishek  M:  Thanks   Thumb Up  ,  @Abhishek  M:  Give  me  a  buzz  a  drop  in  sometime   Smile  
 
 @Abhi:  Will  upload  a  video/pic  soon  for  the  filter  unit.

 Thanks  Amazonian2010   Smile  
 All  the  discuss  are  in  a  2X1.5X1.5  bare  bottom  tank  for  now.  Will  move  the  big  ones  (around  3+  inch)  to  this  tank  this  weekend.
 Water  change  will  be  20/30%  per  week.  I  will  be  storing  the  RO  water  +  normal  tap  water  (to  adjust  the  TDH  within  100  -  120)  in  a  separate  container  for  a  week  and  use  that  for  water  change.
 
 @Jabba,  Abhishek  M  :  Thanks   Smile  @Jabba:  there  are  mix  of  small  and  mid  size  discuss,  I  will  be  leaving  the  bigger  ones  to  the  tank.
