KH Level: The carbonate hardness (KH) should be kept between 1 to 3 dKH.
Feeding: Assorted Discus are omnivorous and thrive on a balanced diet consisting of high-quality pellets, flakes, and occasional live or frozen foods like bloodworms and brine shrimp.
Tank Mates: Due to their peaceful nature, Assorted Discus can be kept with other calm and non-aggressive species that prefer similar water conditions.
Substrates and Tank Decorations: Provide a well-planted aquarium with driftwood, rocks, and caves to offer hiding spots and mimic their natural environment.
Suitable Plants: Assorted Discus enjoy swimming among live plants like Amazon sword, Java fern, and Cryptocoryne species.
Sexing: Determining the sex of Discus can be challenging, as there are no noticeable external differences between males and females.
