Overstocked, and u DO NOT do a water change every day. Takes away all the good bacteria and adds in nitrates and horrible stuff that hurts the fish. Please dot keep fish if u DONT KNOW HOW TOO

Steph L what a absolute ass you are. I have said this so many times! This is my opinion. If you cannot understand that then please go back to kindergarten and learn how to communicate. Most disrespectful account and person I've met. Please go to a doctor and make sure your heads ok.

+Leah Holloway you're right I do get a kick out of it lol I read your comments when I'm in the toilet they keep me entertained. There is no need for accumulating good bacteria if you change water everyday: no amount of good bacteria could deal with the amount of beef heart I was feeding them that is the point you seem to miss. Also my change water came through a triple carbon filter so I didn't have to worry about chemicals. and I don't believe for one second you have bred discus or at least that you have brought them to a big enough size to call yourself successful there are 1 million small discus being sold that get stunted because of the lack of water changes and protein. Every single breeder in the planet does daily water changes sometimes 200% a day in their grow out tanks I'd rather follow their procedures and their advice than yours.

Steph L oh my god! You were the one who told me to go fuck myself! Yeah sure I'm the one being negative.... I have the right to comment what I think! And this is a absolute true reason for not doing water changes everyday! It takes away the growing (good) bacteria from the water and keeps replacing it with more chemicals and ammonia and other things that aren't good to have in the tank. If you think your so wise by telling me to go watch videos and make my own maybe you should. It would teach you something. And winks your at it please go watch something to correct your manners and to rewatch you that on YouTube people can have an opinion and that's all I have and am commenting. Can't believe a (probably 40) year old man is wasting his time over stupid electronics. If you disnt what to see my comments you wouldn't be responding. Your doing it on purpose to get a kick out of it.

Oh and by the way: I can remove any comments I don’t like on MY channel . Like I just did with your insulting message. It was alway an option But usually i chose not to because I am open to constructive criticism. So come up with the proper reasons why daily water changes are bad in my particular context or go troll another channel. And any comment I don’t like I will delete so use your words wisely otherwise you will be wasting your time.

+Leah Holloway You're the one being judgemental and I have been trying to get you to understand the fact that I don't appreciate YOUR judgment on MY channel IF SUCH JUDGMENT IS NOT BACKED UP BY USEFUL INFORMATION THAT OTHER VIEWERS CAN LEARN FROM. It turns out I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese so I am not challenged when it comes to communication. I do not appreciate bad manners and this is exactly what you have been displaying since your first comment. I have also invited you to 1) view videos of breeding operations and learn something, 2) give proper arguments to support your negative comments because it turns out I like to learn something but I don't like people who just judge for the mere need of judging 3) offered you to DISLIKE and move on and finally 4) offered you to create your own videos to express yourself if you have such a need. It turns out you do not seem willing to use any of these options so respectfully go F yourself and have a nice life :) OH and Merry Christmas!

Steph L ok buddy do u speak English?? I said I am not trying to teach or give any information. I am giving MY opinion* and MY personal* experience. So stop being so judgmental and please learn how to read so u can understand what I am trying to say to you
Steph L
Steph L - 1 year ago
+Leah Hollowaythere is still nothing to learn from your comments as zero argument only judgment I made those videos to share experiences and information. I Turns out this is my channel. You don't like it just unsubscribe, or hit the dislike button and move on. Or make your own videos if you have so much to teach.

Steph L uh I'm just stating the abviouse that there are way to many discuss in there. I don't care if u have bred the biggest fish or what not this is my opinion and I have the right to have an opinion just like u do. I'm not commenting for information to other aquarists. I'm giving my own opinion and hopefully some advice to the guy. I have owned many fish and I am just staying this from a personal experience. So no need to give me a lecture about how to keep fish and what to comment. Thanks
Steph L
Steph L - 1 year ago
This is not a correct or useful comment. Stating the obvious overstocking pointless as I have acknowledged it and gave some information on it. I had some of the nicest and biggest discus in the city and I grew them from young. Perhaps you should spend more time watching videos of breeding operations and see how often they change water. Water used was the right softness, filtered and at the right temperature as well. I don't mind someone criticising when they bring some proper arguments on the table so that any readers can learn something but your comment is judgemental and doesn't provide any usable info.

Clean or not it dosent change the fact that there's virtually no room to swim in an overstocked tank (your tank is ok though but I'm just saying)
Steph L
Steph L - 2 years ago
Владимир пушкин I think there are a few factors you need to take into consideration one of them is the species discus fish do not move much in fact if you observe their behavior in natural environments they tend to stand still next to roots or branches or trees stumps. Secondly if you try putting them in a large tank but in small numbers you will observe they didn’t do not seem to do well in fact they look insecure. I grew those massive jumbos in this tank from a 7-8cm size. If they didn’t thrive they would not have gotten so big. Your comment is valuable because the tank is overstocked and one should consider various parameters before Reaching that point.

Friend beautiful tank! What type of background is that??
Steph L
Steph L - 2 years ago
Thanks, I can't remember the background came with the second hand tank, it was very nice except gaps were left behind it when glued so an area that couldn't be cleaned

Steph L
Steph L - 2 years ago
Doryan Duvyan Although you are right I thought it was important especially for beginners who saw this to acknowledge that the tank was overstocked and explain the reasons why I could get away with it. Anyone thinking it’s ok to stock like this and not doing the water changes and not having things setup for perfect water is going to fail.

Its about 33 to 35 gallons.. So how many juveniles or adult discus.?
Steph L
Steph L - 3 years ago
what's the volume of the tank?
in my opinion if you are new to Discus best if to start with adult fish: they cost more but if they are in good shape they are stronger than young ones. water change is the key in my opinion=> if you can setup your system so that water changes are very very easy then you are more likely to perform those water changes regularly without being lazy and fish will thrive.

what size is this tank ?
Steph L
Steph L - 3 years ago
Salim Sebat I am not sure why it is so important but if you want to get into details 450 L is exactly 118.8 gallons and this is based on the external dimensions of the tank now when I measured the internal dimensions of the tank up to the height of the water level that was exactly 410 L of water in this tank which is exactly 108.3 gallons
Salim Sebat
Salim Sebat - 3 years ago
Steph L 450 liter is roughly 120 gallons and this tank is definitely not 120 .maybe 90 gallons???
charlie jenkins

Steph L gallons ?

charlie jenkins this tank was 450 litres, i upgraded to a 600 litre sumped system

Okay honestly your argument is terrible. That's like saying well I beat my dog but it's okay cause I bath him regularly. The fish aren't meant to live like that man
Steph L
Steph L - 3 years ago
Well it is your opinion. I agree the tank was overstocked but i find yours to be ridiculous comparison. Perhaps you should check videos of breeders and actual pros and see how many are kept together and they thrive because they are used to be in numbers. Daily water changes got all this fish to large or jumbo sizes with good food and extremely clean water. And if you listened to the video i mention that i did split them into 2 tanks and they were not doing as well. In any case i have sold a good number and have kept 12 in a 600L system. All these 12 i have now are on that video you saw and are doing fantastic.

Today I just got a regular 5.5 gallon tank with 1 inch of gravel and 3 solid plants (I have a filter and light) I also got 3 black Molly's (grow about 3-3.5 inch) and what I think are 3 sunburst (grow about 2-3 inch) fish. I was just wondering if it was overstocked? Or am I fine, also any suggestions?

when you have a big enough space and some landscaping, plants, logs, rocks and a good ol test kit you can make yourself a small ecosystem my friend. breeding, hunting, schooling all in your living room. what you have there is a pretty piece of furniture
Steph L
Steph L - 4 years ago
I like the bare bottom look: that is reinforced by the fact it allows me to be sure the tank is always clean. To reach the jumbo size you must feed a lot and ensure water quality so that is what i do. Tank has been upgraded to a larger size with a big sump. I dont think i could achieve that result with substrate and all kind of landscaping materials that end up trapping chunks of food. I never have to syphon the tank either.

A lot waterchanging :) Why not fewer fish and some plants and sand at the bottom? Looks a bit "naked"..But beautiful Discus. Se my tank here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rgg_EQOEm0E

Okay :) It dont need to be very comlicated.. If you see my video.. But you have a lot more fish in your tank. I can see that. :)
Steph L
Steph L - 4 years ago
+Holda Fest I am in love with the fish, and focus on fish only. Loads of nutrition to grow them require loads of clean water and a tanks as clean as possible: very hard to do with substrate. Also the bare bottom allows all the waste to slide directly to the intake of my overhead sump => so i never have to syphon. I grew the biggest guys in the tank (18.5 and 19cm) from 9-10cm. I learned my ways by making all the mistakes and killing loads of fish unfortunately - I learned the best advice from simplydiscus.com
Steph L
Steph L - 4 years ago
Hi, here a video showing a little bit of it:
https://youtu.be/C4s7F0-Mitg
The efficiency of the overhead sump is due mainly to 2 things: 1) is a strong airlift sucking up the dirt i the corner and 2) 2 big airstones in that same corner creating a current that attracts the dirt from the rest of the tank.
All these are strong air flows because the tank is connected to a powerful shop pump.
