Trying again after losing all my discus in the 5th grow out contest, I wanted to try again but this time I will not be trying to cut corners and will be trying my best to grow these discus out.
I visited Rick yesterday and picked up 24 discus. 6 turquoise for the contest, 6 Penang eruptions, 6 blue heckle cross and 6 leopards. Im aiming for the strength in numbers strategy.
I am using a lighting diffuser/egg create divider to separate the contestant fish from the other discus until they show signs of distinct differences.
The filteration I am using is hamburg mattenfilter from Swisstropicals. I was really impressed watching this video by pecktec on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3dyXBpmbNQ
Not only do I like the filteration capability but how I can use it as a divider and also for breeding purposes. It also prevents gas bubble disease for my discus because when I fill up the tank using a python hose, I fill it up on the other side of the mat and it absorbs all the micro bubbles.
Going to be doing 50% water change twice a day.
Feeding exclusively new life spectrum grow.
Good luck to everyone in the contest. Hope we all make it to the end
Thank you Rick for the awesome discus and your support.
