    Default Thoughts on adding rams and cardinals before my 14 2.5 in stendker discus

    My tank is cycled and ready to go and am thinking about adding Cardinals and a few GB Rams before I get my Discus in about 6 weeks time.

    What are the potential problems with this ?? is it a bad idea and if so i'd love to hear why

    It's generally considered best to introduce discus to a new tank first, before any tank-mates, to allow them to acclimate and become fully comfortable in their new surroundings for the first few weeks without having to be exposed to other fish during this period.

    It's also better to undertake a proper quarantine with the tank-mates being placed in a QT tank (rather than the discus), to be later introduced to the main discus tank, as this creates far less stress on the discus.
