Ph sits around 6.2-6.4 co2 controlled.
Temperature is 28 C or 80 F (around)
Nitrates are 0 or about. My tests aren't that specific.
I use an ehiem pro 2, I think the 2028 model.
BTW I love my new 24 watt uv sterilizer !!!! GREEN KILLING MACHINE!
Recommended to anyone who can get their hands on it !

Your pH is very good as are your nitrates; you are at the low end of temperature compared to anyone I've seen in a forum. Most discus keeper's never go below 82 F. The Germans I've read about tend higher (86 F) so that is where I keep mine.

I agree that UV sterilizers are good and my canister has one - get at helping to stop algae or Ick.
Do include a full picture of the tank if you can - from the small shots, it really looks good. Also, what do you feed them - they look very healthy.
Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is fifteen Sterba's Corys. Filters: canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber that removes phosphates and nitrates! Also, a highly dangerous commercial nitrate removal unit from hell
