Can Discus thrive in this set?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not recommended to keep a small number of Discus fish in a large space. Big empty spaces increases the chances of territorial and bullying behavior, as a result the fish do not grow consistently and have higher chances of becoming stressed and stunted.
The Stendker hatchery in Germany recommends to keep your young discus fish in a number of 10 or more in a small minimal tank, a smaller space increases the fish competition during meals and helps regulate the aggression resulting in better growth success.
Is the sponge filter enough?
With maintenance and frequent water changes the sponge filter included in this kit should be sufficient. To perform less water changes, we recommend upgrading the filter to a larger filter unit (sold separately).
Do I need LED light?
If the aquarium is kept in a bright room there will be no requirement for a light fixture and the fish will be happy with regular room or natural window light. We do not recommend keeping your fish in a closed dark room, our Stendker discus are social and do better in the presence of others. Isolation will increase the fish sensitivity and provoke them to jump from fear when attempting to feed them.
Should I add decoration or plants?
We only recommend the addition of sand and a single plant on wood such as our disinfected AquaDeco plants range. Young discus can be messy eaters resulting in difficulty to maintain plants successfully in this type of minimal Grow-Out set up.
