this is supreet from punjab. after thorough studying on internet and surfing through blog , i have made my mind to make my 55 gallon aquarium as discus fish only one. i am thinking of buying 8 julienne and raise them ,the tank will be bare bottom and i have read all about the water change routine. i am like almost on the path but have some struggles which i will be listing bellow. oh just for info - i am new in discus but i been keeping fishes from past 7 years.
1. i have diy internal sump in my 55 gallon tank and it has submersible power head with great turbulence & that i read will cause the discus to stress out, so what i can really do here? i have one sponge filter too .
2. this one should be actually the first concern, i don't have anybody around me in discus , so where do i get decent fish at economic price-see i am student and can't afford expensive onez.
3. thirdly, in my mind i see bare bottom tank with colourful 8 baby discuss ( i mean mix colours- some yellow ,blue,turquoise etc) along with some cardinal tetra and blue background but i know not every discus fish strain is not easy for first timers,so plz guide me what types of discus i can have realistically.
4. we have like little hard water supply here, like white strains are formed at top of aqaurium glass and i have to scrub it off, will this water be ok for discus, i read they like soft and acidic type but i also read that now captive bred discus can tolerate vast types of water then wild
i sincerely need help from experienced persons here, as of now i am frustrated as i am not going anywhere with my discus tank (
