I'm planning a rescape of my tanks in the near future, so time to find these fish some new homes.
  • 4x turquoise discus (a little small for their age around 3", otherwise healthy)
  • 2x yoyo loach
  • 1x keyhole cichlid

~.~ Discus is very sensitive to water~ Freshwater Ph 7.4 above~ Temp: 78- 84 F
based on my memory the numbers might be wrong... but very very pretty fish if kept in groups~ You need a nice big tank for these nice fishey~

Ph isn't that important for discus, especially farm raised specimens. What's important is stable water parameters and clean water.

I have a 50 gallon for the discus. Do you keep them in a bare bottom tank? Do you have water parameters? I want to make sure my tank isn't bad for them. Thank you.
