Re: my thread in tank set up... trying to collect info for a tank I am (potentially) setting up for FIL... IF he does just a FW tank... he wants discus. What are the basics??? I know CLEAN water, varied diet etc... planted tank or no? What in everyone opinion is the BEST tank mates for a discus? Worst? Anything else? Am trying to be 110% prepared to give him spreadsheets with pretty much EXACTLY what each (potential) tank will entail so he can decide if he wants to do it/ which one he likes.
I am starting to feel as though there is TO MUCH info, as everything he likes I have not done! I am into cat fish / loaches. He wants FLASH!
Thanks for any suggestions!

Ps... would be appx. a 200 gallon tank... how MANY could he have? full grown?
