    Default Discus are fine. I am not. I think I caught the discus fever again

    After I moved all the 14 discus to the 120 gal tank. I was thinking what should I do with the empty 65 gal. I end up getting 16 >1 inches fry again. Pictures was taken yesterday and they are 6 weeks old.

    The tank was a bit too big for them when I got them. I lower the water and block off part of the tank spaces. It is like 30 gal now. They feel way more comfortable now and begging for food all day long just like their older brothers and sisters

    Same drill for WC. 2 time a day with 90% fresh water each WC. I am looking forward to see them growing up with great health

    Yes you have discus fever. Worry not. There are worse things to spend your time and money on, but there are very few better things.

    Congrats on your new Discus!

    You are well on your way to Multiple Tank Syndrome, this disease gets gradually worse but seldom life threatening! Jokes aside congrats on your purchase and keep the updates coming

    I hope so too Filip. Keep the fingers cross.

    I am giving them the best I can offer to them. 2 x 90% WC each day and feed them 9 to 10 times a day with fdbw, homemade BH mix..... The last batch of discus I have only take 3 months to reach beautiful 4" in shape.

    My arms grow double the size too due to all the WC. Just kidding.

    I learn from this forum that the best thing you can do to the discus at any age to make them healthy is one simple thing. WC, WC and more WC. I setup my tanks with electric water pump to pump the water in and out. The only problem is finding the space to store the aged water. Soon I will need to build a swimming pool for aging the water

    I love this picture. They should have a thread in the disease section for Discus fever, but the only cure is more tanks!

    If the discus are happy, Iím happy
