Whoops almost forgot to do my first update. I've been keeping African cichlids for the past 10 years and wanted to give discus a try, this seemed like a great opportunity. As for the setup it won't win any beauty contests but it works. I've acquired a bunch of stuff over the years so I just pulled some stuff out of storage.
Tank: it's a 25 gallon I got for free it was the dirtiest tank I've ever seen covered in duct tape and I think it was a lizard tank. Cleaned it up and resealed it. Lid is green house material and covered three sides in green wrapping paper. Haha it's all I had on hand.
Filter: aqua clear 70. I had a bunch of canisters but wanted to clean the filter each water change so I picked the hob. Easier to get into.
I'm aging the water in an old 35 gallon sump I had with and air stone to circulate it and a pump that is plumbed into the main tank. Water changes are 98Ish% as much as I can get out everyday. Water temp is 30C and ph is 8.0. I wipe down everything and clean the filter every water change. The slime build up is crazy. I'm feeding freeze dried black worms 6 times a day. Got some nls discus pellets but they won't eat them yet. May try to make a beefheat mix haven't decided. Doing good on FDBW so far. They were happy and eating 2 hours after I got them in the tank and have been doing great since. A couple are just starting to show a little color and they are all growing at about the same rate so far. That's about all I can think of. Thanks to Rick for answering all my questions and for the great and fast shipping. The picture is all I had on my phone I'll take some better ones later.
