View Full Version : 90 gallon hex tank

02-08-2014, 11:02 PM
I have a 90 gallon hexagon tank with 2 clown loaches 1 large angelfish 3 serpea tetra 3 rummynose tetra 1 gold barb 1 medium place 4 Cory cats and 4 2.5 -3 inch discus. I am wondering how many discus I can safely put in this tank as it is set up. It is also a planted tank with plenty of drift wood rocks and plants.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/02/09/udu7u8y4.jpg

Nice tank! Well I'm a newbie, and I know most recommend 6+ discus. I think you shouldn't get any more discus because your tank doesn't have a substantial length unless your willing to upgrade in the future. It'd be hard to see adult discus in there. Maybe another more experienced member will chime in.

Not what you want to hear for sure but, fish swim lengthwise... Not up and down. Hex tanks are in my opinion best used for saltwater coral set ups. Beautiful when done right etc.
I have a 25 hex that I use as a hatchery, I would never keep adults in it.
