    Default Making a community tank

    Hello I welcome all help! I have raised disus for 3 years.. had ups and downs but now want something that looks nice! So I added medum to large black rocks and some plastic pants! I now have 2 disus! One is 5 to 6 inches! 4 years old and a 3 inch. I had temp at 86. I lowered over 4 days to 82. I added neon Tetra 4. what fish would anyone recommend something the works at higher temp. I plan to make water change ones a week. Not concerned with growing the disus out. Just want the tank to look good and not kill the fish. Thanks

    What size is your tank Lewjo and what filtration do you have ?
    How much water can you age and change once weekly in % ?
    You should keep no less than 5 discus, prefferably same age and size ,and they should be full grown if you want to keep them in a community tank with just one WC per week .
    Other than that I would change the fake plants with natural and the nein tetras with cardinal tetras , since they are more temp. tolerant and a bit larger than neons.

    Good luck and take your time to plan things right before you take your next step.

    Sorry the question is what type of fish work in higher temps. I like the plastic plants? Why do they do harm? I have good filters and a 100 gal tank... Please if anyone has an idea of any good fish let me know

    Great news! You have room for more discus! Definitely add more. You can still add other community fish am I personal thing in. Hell I do it! But I always stock at least 6
