[COLOR="Blue"]where is lady hobbs when i need her or fishguy 27 27 i did read that red eyes are preferable in a disucs fish. Red being the preferred. Now does the discus need 82 and above? I don't think so. But from what i have read they tell me the immune system of a discus will be affected by lower temperatures. So if i want the fish to develop correctly i need higher temps like 84. Now would that not harm the plants and catfish? Neons it would. But if these fish are all farmed now they won't need the exact conditions of where they originate from right? Why is the immune system affected in cooler temperatures and improved in higher?
