 Hi  all,
 
 Let's  rev  up  some  action  in  this  forum!!!
 
 I  have  tanks  of  the  following  sizes:-
 
 4  feeters  :  48"  x18"  x  18"
 5  feeters  :  60"  x18"  x  18"
 
 1.  What  is  the  ideal  stocking  density  of  discus  fry  of  say  thumbnail  size  in  these  tanks?
 2.  What  preventive  medicines  and  in  what  dosage  are  recommended  for  fry  from  this  size  till  they  reach  2"  and  the  dosage?
 3.  I  am  doing  feeding  and  siphoning  4  times.  Is  this  ok??
 4.  What  medicine  is  recommended  for  fry  being  sent  in  parcels?
 
 I  have  my  own  theory  on  the  above.  However,  i  would  like  to  get  more  info  from  all  our  friends  here  on  IAH.  
 
 Regards,
 Rama

 1.  What  is  the  ideal  stocking  density  of  discus  fry  of  say  thumbnail  size  in  these  tanks?
 100-200  fry  if  you  are  doing  WC  4  times  a  day
 2.  What  preventive  medicines  and  in  what  dosage  are  recommended  for  fry  from  this  size  till  they  reach  2"  and  the  dosage?
 Lesser  medicines  the  better,  Adding  rock  salt  to  their  tank  after  WC's  would  do.  Deworm  at  2  inches
 3.  I  am  doing  feeding  and  siphoning  4  times.  Is  this  ok??
 Awesome
 4.  What  medicine  is  recommended  for  fry  being  sent  in  parcels?
 Ammo  Lock
 I  have  my  own  theory  on  the  above.  However,  i  would  like  to  get  more  info  from  all  our  friends  here  on  IAH.

 ...and  I  have  never  bred  Discus!  so  don't  take  it  too  seriously  Thumbs Up

 I  have  gone  through  this  wonderful  book  so  many  times  that  it  gets  me  thinking  on  different  issues.  Raising  fry  is  one  aspect  he  has  not  covered  in  detail.  
 
 In  Bangkok,  Malaysia  there  are  breeders  and  then  there  are  specialists  who  raise  only  the  fry.  This  frees  up  the  space  at  the  breeders  end  and  also  helps  concentrate  on  breeding.
 
 Fishes  breed  naturally  with  good  food,  regular  water  changes  and  proper  preventive    medication.  We  just  have  to  proper  conditions  and  if  there  is  a  pair  then  we  ventually  have  fry.  One  thing  about  discus  that  i  admire  is  the  way  they  take  care  of  the  fry.  Well,  then  they  need  to  be  separated.  The  fry  need  bigger  tank  to  grow.  This  is  the  part  that  i  am  interested  in  understanding  more.
 
 Thanks  guys,  i  will  be  contacting  rafat    tomorrow.
 
 Regards,
 Rama

 Coming  back  to  this  thread.....
 
 Why  are  there  some  fry  sleeping  (flat  on  their  side  on  the  bottom)?
 
 I  have  noticed  a  couple  of  them.  They  feed  properly.  But  dont  swim  like  the  others??  Should  i  cull  them?  Humanely  of  course.i.e  put  them  with  all  other  such  rejects.
 
 Regards,
 Rama

 Hi  Rama:
 
 Their  Swim  Bladder  hasn't  yet  developed  properly  OR  is  malfunctioning...
 If  it  doesn't  get  rectified  in  72hrs,  you'll  need  to  discard  them...
 
 Before  doing  that,  try  giving  salt  bath  separating  them  out...
 Bye,

 Hi  Neil:
 
 Salt  bath  doesn't  accelerate  growth  but  can  rectify  an  infection  OR  a  blocked  tract...
 How  it  does  read  here...
 Due  to  Osmotic  pressure  difference,  the  cells  tend  to  swell/tighten,  thereby  simulate  a  movement  in  the  organs...
 Bye,
