The easiest trick for keeping happy discus is to raise the water temperature. We highly recommend 85 to 86°F. The reason is because the discus farms we get them from usually keep their waters at these temperatures, and when we try to force them to cool down, it becomes a source of discomfort. When the heat is kept high, your discus become more active, their metabolisms run well, they grow faster, and they show off better colors. So if you want to successfully care for discus, be willing to make this necessary change, which may differ from your normal fish keeping habits.
Tank mates must meet two criteria: they should be able to live in high temperatures and they cannot outcompete the discus for food. In general, discus are slow feeders, so if you put them with speedy, bullet-shaped fish (like barbs or even huge schools of tetras), the discus will tend to lose that race. Even other hot water fish like clown loaches, German blue rams, and angelfish can be too fast for them.
Instead, consider starting with a discus only tank where they are the centerpiece fish. Once you get them eating well, consider gradually adding cardinal tetras, Sterbai cory catfish, or maybe a bristlenose pleco. However, avoid getting too many tank mates, or else the discus may lose out on nutrition.

Officially, Discus comprise two cichlid species (Symphysodon discus (Heckel, 1840) and S. aequifascateus (Pellegrin, 1903)) and five subspecies (S. discus discus (Heckel 1840), S. discus willischwartzi (Burgess 1981), S. aequifasciatus aequifasciatus (Pellegrin 1903), S. aequifasciatus axelrodi (Schultz 1960) and S. aequifasciatus haraldi (Schultz 1960)) of fishes. Additionally there is a myriad of sport mutations, man-made varieties.
Very soon you could have all the answers about Tropical Fish you're looking for. You're about to discover my amazing tropical fish secrets to help you achieve the results you deserve.
I was talking with a tropical-fish-mad friend of mine, Mark Edwards, and he suggested that I should make an instructional video to go with my book, one that outlined the necessary steps to setting up a fantastic looking tropical fish aquarium. What a great idea...but as I'm a bit camera shy I left it at that. After a few days of thinking a bit more seriously about this idea and some more discussion with friends, I became convinced that if I was new to tropical fish keeping, an instructional video to show me what steps to take to set up a tropical fish aquarium would be something that I would definitely want to watch. So after a lot a begging, I eventually persuaded Mark to star in the instructional video. Wow... what a great job he did.
...But just as important is knowing that you are doing everything right to create the optimal living environment for your tropical fish. You'll also rest easy, knowing that you won't have to spend every free minute you have tending to your aquarium trying to correct pH, bacteria and toxin levels. So you can sit back and relax while watching your healthy, happy tropical fish swimming around your beautifully clean aquarium.
By following the steps in the set you'll be the envy of your friends. They'll all want an aquarium too after they've seen how amazing yours looks! For the rest of your life you will hold the secrets that allow you to keep a healthy, beautiful looking aquarium full of amazing brightly colored fish and plants. And you will be able to do all this with a minimal amount of fuss.
You can be reading my book and be well on your way to planning the set-up of your tropical fish aquarium or learning how to rid your aquarium of unwanted bacteria, disease and toxins in the next 5 minutes! With the Secrets To Tropical Fish Success downloadable instructional video you can actually see the all the steps that are involved in setting up a tropical fish tank in real time on your computer....INSTANTLY!

Abstract:The adult human heart cannot repair itself after injury and, instead, forms a permanent fibrotic scar that impairs cardiac function and can lead to incurable heart failure. The zebrafish, amongst other organisms, has been extensively studied for its innate capacity to repair its heart after injury. Understanding the signals that govern successful regeneration in models such as the zebrafish will lead to the development of effective therapies that can stimulate endogenous repair in humans. To date, many studies have investigated cardiac regeneration using a reverse genetics candidate gene approach. However, this approach is limited in its ability to unbiasedly identify novel genes and signalling pathways that are essential to successful regeneration. In contrast, drawing comparisons between different models of regeneration enables unbiased screens to be performed, identifying signals that have not previously been linked to regeneration. Here, we will review in detail what has been learnt from the comparative approach, highlighting the techniques used and how these studies have influenced the field. We will also discuss what further comparisons would enhance our knowledge of successful regeneration and scarring. Finally, we focus on the Astyanax mexicanus, an intraspecies comparative fish model that holds great promise for revealing the secrets of the regenerating heart.Keywords: heart; regeneration; scarring; zebrafish; teleost fish; Astyanax mexicanus; comparative approach; interorgan
When it comes to filtration, you can never over do it. As long as the flow isn't blowing around your fish and plants too much, a larger more powerful filter will never be a bad thing. Having to little filtration in an unbalanced tank can create an opportunity for excess waste and or certain bacteria to increase and cause cloudy water. Furthermore, not having the proper mechanical filtration in your filter can prevent its ability to sift our fine particles that may be contributing to the discolored water. Using a fine filter pad or even better, a poly filter floss will catch all the tiny free floating particles looming in your tank water. Having robust filtration will also help process more waste and help to keep your fish tank clean and safe for all your inhabitants. 2b1af7f3a8
