Advice on discus
I have been keeping fish for years now and am entertaining the idea of getting a discus tank. I have been reading and reading as I do and have found some conflicting info so thought I would ask for some personal opinions. Here is where I'm at
Thinking of doing a 6ft planted tank with sand as a substrate. 2 heaters 2 canisters rated for 100% of the tank. All with 5-6 discus. Not Juvie and reccomended 4cm+??
1. Would 40-50% water changes weekly be suitable?
2. Can I have 2 bristlenose with them?
Thanks in advance
