What is the best filtration for discus fish? Now I using bottom filtration, does someone have a proper settings up pic which can share with me? Maybe my filtration system was setup incorrect way.

If the "bottom filtration" you're using is an undergravel filter, it's a very bad idea with discus.

I agree with Taz buttom filtration is a big no-no. Although they were all the rage in the early 80's. I am using Fluval 306 canister filters.

In my experience the simplest most cost effective and easiest filtration is the humble sponge filter. The most effective filtration is a sump. Pros and cons with all types of filtration, but for simplicity go with sponges.
