  1. Default Recommended PH, GH, KH for Discus


    0 Not allowed!
    PH
    Display 6.5 7.5
    Breeding 5.5 6.5
    Grow-Out 6.8 7.5

    Hardness:
    Display 1015 GH, 5-8 KH
    Breeding 1-4 GH, 0-1 KH
    Growing-Out 8-15 GH, 5-8KH

    I would avoid buffers/additives when keeping discus; unless, they exceed the ranges above. Discus love good clean consistent water quality, so be careful of even slight fluctuations when performing water changes.

    Note: Some PH buffers increase phosphates in your water and promote algae growth.

    Hope this helps!
