Discus Fish Tank Mates
I accept that a Discus aquarium ought to be completely designed for keeping Discus fish, as different species for the most part don’t need the devotion and climate that Discus need. The arrangement, plants and different occupants ought to be painstakingly picked for ideal circumstances, giving the Discus fish main goal. Disk are quiet, tentative fish who like to be kept in little gatherings of five to eight fish, as like other tutoring fish they need the security of a school around them. This additionally assists in decreasing with focusing on of adapting to their new climate. Beyond other Discus, what tank mates you pick again totally relies upon the reason.
In the event that you need a pleasant presentation tank, Discus fish feel OK with little tutoring fish like characins. At the point when Discus fish see the characins in the open, they are probably going to come out detecting that they are protected to swim. I would suggest a huge school of characins like Neon Tetras, Cardinal Tetra and Rummy Nose Tetras. It copies their common fish tank bubbler habitat and both prosper in a similar water conditions. Notwithstanding, you can keep most serene sluggish South American fish and Dwarf Cichlids with Discus, inasmuch as they don’t rule or out seek food and space. Many have had Dwarf Gouramis as well as Pearl Gouramis with Discus, however I wouldn’t suggest the bigger more forceful Blue and Golden Gouramis. More modest tranquil catfish, for example, the Corydoras will coexist well with Discus fish and work really hard as bottom dwellers.
However much I revere freshwater Angelfish, I additionally wouldn’t suggested keeping them with Discus as they can develop huge and menace the Discus, outcompete the Discus for food and convey sicknesses that Discus are especially inclined to getting. It tends to be done, however as a rule requires a lot bigger aquarium and a talented aquarist. I’ve additionally known individuals that have kept Kribensis with Discus, yet similar as freshwater Angelfish I wouldn’t suggest that immediately. One of my number one fish is the Blue Ram (German Blue Ram, Ram Cichlid), a delightful bantam cichlid that will supplement your Discus very well.
For a reproducing tank, just Discus ought to be kept and I would emphatically advise against adding anything more. While many love having Plecostomus and other green growth eaters, they are infamous for hooking onto Discus fish and sucking on their bodily fluid covering, leaving the Discus defenseless against stress and expire. This isn’t to imply that that the two have not been effectively held together, however as far as I can tell it has been only issues. For another Discus raiser it is best not to face unnecessary challenges, much more so with a fish as delicate as the Discus fish.…
