Hi you were comparing the test strip you had the bottle with the diagram on the test strip bottle container the wrong side up,so you were comparing the wrong colours with the wrong tests your nitrate you were comparing your ph.ect.if your reading the bottle from the wrong way all the time you will be reading your water chemistry wrong proberly for years putting chemicals into your tank you don't need even more so.try concentrating on the fish instead if mak8nv videos with poor information on keeping fish.

my only suggestion would be to invest in higher quality foods like repashy, fluval big bites, or omega 1. tetra brand foods are filled with ash and fillers that are phosphate based and in addition to not being very healthy they can cause massive algae outbreaks. one man's humble suggestion, tank and fish are beautiful.

l love your discus tank! And your videos are very informative . Thank you, now Im ready to set up my tank for discus (my water is from a well and tends to have a higher ph than discus need and its hard water but not severly .) I think your method will work perfectly for me. i refuse to waste water with a RO filter lol

how often does the automatic feeder dispense during the course of the day?
Joricano - 6 years ago
i have the same feeder, thinking of getting discus soon. Just trying to collect info from people that have discus. thanks for the reply
Discus Aquarium Care
Discus Aquarium Care - 6 years ago
Joricano 4 times a day at the time you set. It!s an Eheim feeder.
Discus Aquarium Care
Discus Aquarium Care - 6 years ago
The feeder dispenses food up to 4 times a day at the time you set for each feeding. It's an Eheim and is a bit pricey but it's the only one I found that has that many feedings.

Nice practical video. I'd like to know the plants you have and I see you're using LED's. How long do you leave the lights on?
Discus Aquarium Care
Discus Aquarium Care - 6 years ago
Nat Turner There are a lot of different plants but I don't remember all the names. There's amazon sword, hygrophilia, ulvacious, java ferns and more. We ask the advice of a woman at our LFS whose good with plants. Since the tank is kept at around 82 with acidic water, not many plants will work. The lights are on for maybe 10 hours total, but the brightness ramps up and down gradually with about 6 hours of full brightness.

I am so glad to see a lady presenting the video on discus. I am in this hobby quite some time and wondered all the time why not women. In fact this hobby is not so tough it just need patience and consistency.

Thanks again and hope to see your some more videos.

something to do about nothing - 6 years ago
Joash Miranda they aren't chemicals per say, they are concentrate of macro and micro nutrient blends that are naturally occurring and beneficial for healthy plant growth. the fish are perfectly equipped to handle them. hope that helps

I used to keep gold gouramis, pearl gouramis and silver dollars and the tetra colour tropical granules really did an amazing job at bringing out their colour. Even the grey silver dollars started to develop some red pigmentation and some shiny spots on their backs which looked like shining dust.

Great video. I don't use test strips but i would suggest using a cup to scoop tank water and dip your strips in a cup. I was warned about that a while back. I really did enjoy the video and i subscribed to your channel as well.
