    Maybe too many fish, but if you change plenty of water every day, it can be ok. Nice fish, BTW.

    They are very nice looking discus with striking colors and your set up is crisp and very clean.
    I agree with unicast on the crowding issue but even with a broad size range in your group there doesn't seem to be any single fish cowering in the corners. They all look super healthy.
    It is typically recommended to have 1 adult discus per 10 gallons of water. How big is your tank? What is your water change schedule? Do you have plans to upgrage tank size or add additional tanks?

    It's a beautiful display but you sure do have a lot of fish of different sizes packed in that tank.

    Excellent! You have 30 very good looking fish. If that is a 150 gallon or larger aquarium you might be okay as long as you are mindful o of your bio-load. Water change, filtration, and aeration. Living in the Middle East as you do is a heater necessary?

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions, I have shifted my 20 juvies to 200 litres aquarium and this aquarium is 400 litres.

    Good move. It made for a pretty picture but it was way too many fish for a 200 liter tank.
