    is 6 discus a good number for a 150 G tank ?

    I would like to go get some more but I want these fish to end up being as big as possible which will require lots of feeding obviously. Plus I want to add in some smaller fish.

    My LFS has an adult blue turquise and a pigeon blood .They both look amazing .I cant wait to see some wilds in a fish shop.

    @MilbFish
    Most people say 10G per fish for discus so you could go a little higher in my view so long as you leave adequate room for tank mates if any and I would suggest leaving some spare capacity as suits your confidence and experience level.

    If I get 6 discus fish what are the chances that a breeding pair will form ? because I actualy dont want any fry because I wouldnt be able to look after them

    how can I stop my discus from breeding ?

    Once they mature you could trade away the males or the females.

    You also don't want them breeding if you have mixed strains. Those are the cheap ones the fish store sells. Breeders do not mix their strains.

    It seems that a natural type background with some depth in the picture may help reduce shyness/timidity. Yes I've seen pics of orange or near full orange buti forget the names the strains were under. Orange but more yellow towards the extremities. Each to their own but I think solid coloured discus look better when the fish has a little variation in the finnage area.

    I just put some driftwood and fake plants into the tank and ph has gone down really low.It reads as 6 which is as low as my testing kit can read.Does this mean that I have to take the driftwood out ?

    thanks for any response
