I'm finding that aggression is more prevelant than it was 30 years ago. Especially with pigeon bloods. Interesting to know if anyone else experienced this.

You may have the perfect mix of Discus and have achieved this naturally.

I find the more discus u have the less bully because bully can't get every discus so everyone get to eat

Agreed. The volume controls the bullies.

Are ya'll going to Aquashella in Dallas? I like that Wattley Turq and would like to see them in person. Also, love the video and the practical conversational language used to deliver the message. Very effective and more understandable. Good job!

Can I use power head in discus tank 3.5 x1.5 x1.5 ? Does the water circulation /w. Current give them discomfort?

Discus don't like too much current they will hide under the pump where it's dead current

Discus are the best! Thank you for sharing!
Can you house two breeding pairs in a decent size tank? What is the ideal temperature range for the Discus. I’m a Tetra guy, so I know my water is too cool (78 Degrees ) for the Discus.

Thanks Gabe, you talked about exactly what I experienced with my Discus when I first got them. I've had them since late November of 2018. Feeding time can get quite roudy. I use two cone feeders now, and it's the wierdest thing, the second most dominant fish tries to dominate the second feeder. I really only notice the aggressive behavior when I use the cone feeders. I intervene when necessary to make sure all 6 fish get the food they need. Thanks again for the video. You nailed it!

Great videos Gabe! No flashy fancy stuff straight to the point and you know what your talking about. So many novice people nowadays making fishroom videos giving crappy advice.

Thank you Mr Gabe
Could you explain how you culture red worms that u fed in video?
Correct me if I'm wrong but
From my experience it's best to have about 6 to 8 individuals when starting discus at various sizes some big some medium and so on. Everyone wantes big discus even myself but after learning hard way most of bigger ones from spawn tends to be males and with a tank of only males testosterone grows into aggression. Also as you mentioned of the ranking status i had one that wouldn't grow beyond a certain size and would get bully by rest. I felt sad and removed it. Know what next happened the smallest size one got bullied. Key is to have appropriate stocking requirements and various sizes.
Definitely not 2 in one tank unless its a pair. IMO If you want to grow the 2 individual they should be separated.
Hope this helps some1.

Awesome video as usual your topic is spot on! Gabe you know your stuff!! And it’s awesome that you also love to share your love! We all appreciate it. There is so much info out there and much of it is not that great. Your videos are exactly what anyone who loves discus need to know. Gabe as you know I’ve definitely had this problem and your advice is totally true. I move them around and add one but generally keeping tanks with similar colors seem to be my magic in large group (but I never over crowd) ! Great video and thank you so much for sharing it is appreciated! I watch every one!
