    Default 2 hob for discus grow out

    Hey all. Thinking about growing out 10 juvenile 2.5 inch discus in a 75 BB. The tanks been cycling. I already have an aquaclear 110, penguin biowheel 350 and a sponge filter on the tank. I really dont want to spend the extra cash on a canister since I already have the 2 hob filters. Would both filters on the 75 be too much flow for the juvenile discus?.. I can turn down the flow on the 110 on low.

    I don't think filtration or over-filtration matters when you're raising 2.5" discus. It's completely dependent on the size and frequency of water changes. I raise small discus on sponge filters because they get daily W/C's. There are other threads on Simply showing others that have produce 6" - 7" fish in 12 months just by doing water changes.

    Whenever you feel stupid, remember that there are people out there looking for Pokemon.

    My question was if the flow of both hob would be too much flow on the upper half of the tank for the juveniles, not if my filtration is sufficient. Both hobs together will suffice with routine wcs
