In order to maintain high quality discus fish, our juvenile stock is fed a mixture of various foods rich in protein, carrotene and vitamins. We regularly feed them shrimp eggs to bring out the natural colouration in them. Adult fish are fed live food once in a week with a mixture of homemade beefheart, tetra prima and various other discus foods. Juveniles fish are fed thrice a day while twice for adults.
The key to having a healthy and happy discus is water quality. Adult fish are kept in de-ionised water, while the juvenile are kept in a mixture of 2/3 DI water and 1/3 dechlorinated tap water. Water changes of 20% is done for adult tanks and 40% for juvenile tanks every day to maintain the best water quality.
