    Chapter 12 - "Discus to Angels"

    The planted discus tank is going to be converted into a planted angel fish tank. With my current busy lifestyle, I'm finding more enjoyment in caring for easier fish. Most weeks, I'm only home 3 days per week. Anyway, angels have always been my all-time favorite. Alums are my dream fish. I've added locally bred Manacapuru angels to the tank. Let's see how it goes.

    Hi Bathi, this is a totally gorgeous tank and the music added is perfect. Am I wrong in thinking the discus seems to be hiding a lot? Did you QT the angels prior to adding to the tank?

    Angels were quarantined for 2 weeks before being added to the main tank. Yes, 2 of my discus were showing symptoms of a swim bladder disorder before I added them to this tank as well. One of them has been in the hospital tank for more than 3 weeks now, not eating anything and remaining completely in a head-down position, suffering, but not dead yet. The other one is in the main tank and eating well. Three of the larger discus are also hiding; however, they are eating, and 2 of them are breeding too. These two normally do not hide, but the other one is always hiding and only comes out after the lights are turned off. The breeding pair is always breeding. For food, they come out one by one. I'm worried about them too. This breeding activity also seems too much now.

    Also, it looks like something is going on in the tank, but I cannot figure it out.

    A beautiful tank and angels will do a lot better with your routine and a planted tank. Angels have been my life long favorite of all the fish I've kept over the years.

    Thank you.
    Those larger discus have been with me for more than 3 years. Previously, they were not in a bare-bottom tank either. However, back then, I had the time to medicate them if they showed any signs of illness. Now, it's not like that. I don't have time for medications.

    Chapter 13 - It's almost more than 6 months.

    Because of the failures I faced with discus in this setup, I finally decided to go with angelfish. They perfectly match my lifestyle and help reduce my stress. I also added two pairs of flag cichlids, which I think will blend perfectly with the angelfish. Let's see.
