Look on here for a user by the name of DiscusPaul. He has a great write up on the care of discus, which I believe has been stickied in the Fish section here on TPT. PM him for some great advice on your tank and fish.
Btw, you have a fantastic tank, I believe your discus were stunted before you bought them. Kuddos to you for giving them a good home and doing your best to make and keep them healthy.
Good luck with your tank.
Thank you is appreciate the point in the right direction
Thanks they may well have been as they were a few months old already but at least I have learned for future care now
Looks like bba, don't let it get a hold! You can spot treat it with excel and or H2o2.
Lower your lighting period could help, what's it at now?
I have never been able to beat this... This is the first time I have really tried to keep the plants in check. Normally just throw out and replace when they get too bad!
Actually tried to get plants that might survive better and they seem to be doing okay this time but the algae is always my problem
The lights are on from about 10:30 till 7:30 at night ( timer) if I turn the time it will make my feeding window even smaller which is already a problem due to work
I have just started to use easy-life profito which is supposed to be an all round fert 15ml last Saturday after wc and will be using 15ml per week from now on.... Could it be the tank settling to that?
Many thanks for the plug, gt.
Yes, my guide is located inside the first & only sticky in the Fish section. click on that sticky for 3 articles & FAQ.
And to James Hill, yes, I would be very happy to answer any questions you may have on discus - don't hesitate to PM me if I can be of any help.
BTW, you can also view my guide on the BIDKA forum, (British & International Discus-Keepers Association) in their "Library" section.
Thanks I have looked through and found it very useful so far
Appreciated again thanks
I have created an account on BIDKA but not yet had much of a look around so I will look into that too
