I am so excited to have the opportunity to join in on the 5th discus grow out contest. I have always wanted discus and have been prepping this tank for a few months now. Good luck to everyone else in the contest!
Tank – ADA 90P (~48 gallons)
Filters – PennPlax Cascade 1000 and Sponge Filter
Lighting – Ecoxotic E-90
Heaters – Eheim 150W and ViaAqua 200W
Substrate - Bare Bottom
Temperature – 29 C
Feeding – 4x daily 1/2 FDBW cube
Water change – 1x daily 60%
Filter cleaning - 1x weekly canister filter; 1x daily sponge filter
I had some beautiful manzanita in the tank (as you may see in the photos below) that I purchased from tony1928 however I decided to remove them and keep the tank completely bare bottom to focus purely on growing the discus out to a nice size. Once they are larger I will likely add the wood back for decoration.
