 in  farms  they  grow  fish  feeding  them  with  blood  worms.
 But  in  ponds  they  grow  fish  feeding  then  rice  porridge,etc.  wich  promote  the  growth  of  the  fish.

 Madan,
 
 Thats  because  these  discussions  bring  back  memories  of  the  time  I  bought  a  Kg  of  tubifex  and  tried  breeding  them  large  scale  in  my  balcony.  At  the  end  of  the  week,  when  I  wasn't  at  home,  my  mom  got  someone    to  clean  up  the  whole  (worm  breeding)  setup.  
 
 Now  that  is  proactive  Agression  -  Nag  are  you  listening??
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 Sid,  the  decomposive  aggression  is  still  more  worse.
 
 WRT  tubifex  worms  one  thing  that  had  to  be  taken  is,  the  body  of  the  tubifex  worm  isn't  the  source  of  contamination  but  the  source  from  where  they  are  brought  ie.,  ditches  and  stagnant  waters.    If  you  could  culture  it  at  home,  then  you  can  try  feeding  it.

 Interesting...But,  worms  and  other  invert  larvae  are  the  natural  diet  of  discus,  so  this  expt  doesn't  sound  right  to  me....

 Logically  true  Rahul!    Insect  larvae  and  worms  are  what  discus  eat  in  the  wild.    But  i've  seen  discus  go  oval  in  an  LFS  after  prolonged  feeding  of  tubifex  worms.    Also  i  really  doubt  if  tubifex  worms  exist  in  the  very  clear  black  waters  of  the  Amazon  and  that  too  in  waters  where  hardness  is  next  to  0.

 No,  I'm  pretty  sure  tubifex  are  not  found  alongside  discus...but,  BHM  has  a  much  higher  protein+fat  content  than  tubifex  and  if  anything  causes  uneven  growth,  BHM  should.
 
 Plus,  I've  never  seen  growth  abnormalities  in  any  other  cichlid  fed  on  tubifex,  both  in  my  own  tanks  and  other  breeders',  and  I  doubt  if  discus  metabolism/physiology  is  very  different  from  that  of  other  cichlids,  say  angels.
