Was this aquarium expensive? I am looking for an affordable aquarium that is on the bigger side of the aquariums, but can't find an affordable one.

Dude if you have plecos in there, remove them. They will attack the discus. As plecos grow bigger (more than 4 inches), they need the protein from the skin of the slimy fish which they dont get from algae, so they will jus stick to these fish and maybe even kill them in the process.

this is honestly the most beautiful tank i have ever seen, i kept trying to figure out how to describe or share this tank that's been in my head for so long and you did it! i dont have any plans for a 240 gallon any time soon but i am planning on emptying out my 60 gallon and trying to mirror this as best as i can, i also want it to be a discus tank. anyway, this was awesome! good job!

I wanted to make sure the emersed anubias plant leaves stayed above the water, without them touching the ceiling. Thanks! The easiest solution was to keep the water level slightly lower.

I've always wanted to have the red color of the discus contrast against the green planted tank. But I do have other discus in my fishroom. Please check out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoJdcBMHfg4.
Grazie mille!

Hi, maybe a stupid question, but i would like to know after the fish been into quarantine, what do you do with the water from that tank ? Fish are healthy, do you reuse it or throw it away and fill up the quarantine-tank with fresh water !! Hi from Amsterdam
PlantedDiscusFishTank
PlantedDiscusFishTank - 4 years ago
Good question. After quarantine, I will empty the QT and wash the filter. Then I keep the filter in another tank to keep it "seeded" until I get new fish. Once I get new fish, I fill it with fresh water and then put back the seeded filter and voila...instant cycle! Thanks!

Watching your tank makes one thinking seriously about discus... Are they really that demanding considering pH and hardness levels as always told...? Or are bred in captivity less difficult...?

How come the fish weren't shocked by the changed in water location/temp? How did you make sure the temperature were the same in both tanks?
PlantedDiscusFishTank
PlantedDiscusFishTank - 4 years ago
Victor,
I have a heater in the sump filter of the Quaratine tank, and in the sump filter of the 240 gallon tank. I set both heaters to about 83F, and I use a digital thermometer to fine tune the temperature. I have the same water source for all tanks and the automatic water change system makes the parameters pretty close to each other. The larger tank with the substrate and rocks typically will have a slightly higher PH than the bare tanks but all within 1 PH...not enough to shock the discus. Thanks for the question!

I love your YouTube channel! And your tank! What is the plant the is growing above the water line?
PlantedDiscusFishTank
PlantedDiscusFishTank - 4 years ago
Thanks again. I've had my battles with algae just like you. On some of my videos..the ones with discus spawning, you can see all the blackbeard that covered the anubias. I ended up buying a dozen Siamese algae eaters (SAEs) and within a week, they cleaned up most of the blackbeard!.
Otos and plecos will get the green algae, and the SAEs will eat the hair and blackbeard algae. I also limit the lights to 6 hours with a siesta period...the timer comes on in the morning before work, turn off during the day, and turn on again when I get home from work.
The siesta period allows the CO2 to build up again so that it is at max levels when the lights come back on (got this from reading Diana Walstad). This keeps the algae at a minimum!
Cindy O'Hara
Cindy O'Hara - 4 years ago
PlantedDiscusFishTank wow that's amazing- I never knew anubias could grow immersed. I love your aquascape it's probably the best I have seen and the fact that it's low tech blows me away!!! You also have no algae not even on the edges of the anubias which is my Achilles heal! What's your secret?
PlantedDiscusFishTank
PlantedDiscusFishTank - 4 years ago
Hi Cindy,
Thanks for watching, its nice to know that others appreciate my hobby!
The plant above the water is an Anubias Frazeri. I bought it as a small plant online a couple of years ago and it was tied to a driftwood submerged in one of my 20gal tanks. After a few months, it had a leaf that poked above the water, and slowly, it started shooting more leaves above the water until it was fully emersed!
