    Default Discus in Koi Pond

    Hi All,

    I am from Indonesia. I have been keeping discus in my koi pond since September 2015. I dumped them into the pond at the size of around 3". Now they have grown up to between 5"-6" with the largest proving very difficult to catch.

    Apart from discus and koi, hundreds of tetras of different species are inside the pond too. (rummy nose tetra, black skirt tetra, black neon tetra, red eye tetra).

    The one disadvantage I see keeping discus in a pond is you can not appreciate their true beauty since you are looking that them top down. That drone shot is really cool.

    That was my thought as well. It would take away a big part of the enjoyment of Discus keeping. Nice pond though.

    i used to keep discus in fish tank. But my mom insisted on giving away that tank. The tank was quite old n my mom dislike it. It was a 90x45x60 cm3 tank. So i decided to move discus into my pond. That time i only kept discus for few wmonths.

    It was 4 discus at that time. For few months, i didnt even bother to check the discus in my pond. Until one day i happened to see a big discus in my pond. They hav grown very well in my pond maybe due to massive water volume. So i decided to add more discus in the pond.

    My annual ritual now is to purchase 4 of them every few months n dump them into pond until maybe i reach around 100 of them. There are 15 in the pond so far.

    Wow I never thought I'd see the day when discus and koi could coexist peacefully and both thrive in the same pond. It's pretty cool I must say. It reminds me of something I saw at petco many years ago, they had an indoor pond that was about a a foot and a half tall and about 8x8 on a stand so you could see through the side panels. The indoor pond stocked with discus would be really cool to see and not a nightmare to clean because the top of the tank was exposed and it didn't have any dedicated lighting. You could always use hanging lighting from the ceiling though.
