    i moved my discus out of my 180l high tech planted tank to a 4ft ram breeding tank whilst i changed everything around and started experimenting with C02, has anyone had experience with putting discus into a high tech tank? co2 is showing light greeny yellow on the drop checker and is currently left on over night with little surface agitation.
    cheers

    Hi, i run a 'high tech' discus tank, i use quite high light levels and therefore co2 is quite high. Have found that as long as they are introduced slowly to higher levels of co2 they will be fine. As long as the tank & water is in good condition i dont think you will have many problems.

    thanks for that, i spoke to Will also and the general consensus is to do this very slowly and keep the tank clean, cheers
