    Dwarf gourami and discus

    Hi everyone, Just wanted to know if people thought paring dwarf Gouramis and discus as tankmates would be a good idea. Aquarium temp is 28 degrees Celsius so it would (acording to what I age read would mean they would be at summer breading temperatures). Many people however say they have kept...

    Is keeping fish in bare tanks an act of cruelty?

    I can't help feeling keeping fish in bare tanks is the same cruelty practised by zoo's back in the 50's & 60's where animals were kept in small cages without stimulation "For their own good"! "It's easier to maintain & keep them free from disease" I'm told but did not the same argument apply to...

    16 dKH Discus?

    What do you guys think? Is it possible to keep discus in 16 degrees KH water? Has anyone done it? If youve kept it in hard water can you say how hard (KH and/or GH). They would probably be UK bred. It would also be a planted tank. Im really looking for some evidence.
