    Default Stunted discus feeding

    I have 6 Discus that are all stunted. Some due to getting them this way when purchased, others I believe due to higher nitrate levels in my planted tank.

    Regardless of the stunted growth I like my discus the way they are and want to keep them as long as possible. They seem to be otherwise healthy. 2 of them mate and lay eggs frequently. I have had them in this stunted stage for over a year and keep feeding them around 3 times per day. Question is since they are stunted can I cut back on feeding to once or twice a day? Or should they still get 3 or even more feedings?

    All my Discus that are a year old get only two feedings per day.

    I will cut down then and try that. May be able to keep the tank a little cleaner since they are not growing anyways.

    How long does it take them to finish their food per feeding?
