Caring for Discus fishes is a popular hobby for many fish lovers. Most of them choose the Discus because of its personality. Unlike other fish breeds, Discus fishes know how to interact with the owner and it’s pretty observant of its surroundings.
Starting up a Discus fish aquarium is pretty simple, even if you are a newbie. Setting-up a new habitat for your Discus is a rewarding task that won’t take too much of your time.
What do You Need in Setting-up a Discus Fish Aquarium?
The things that you need for a Discus fish aquarium can be easily bought from a pet store. Here are some tips:
- Choose the right Discus aquarium. The fish tank for the Discus must be large enough for your pets to swim freely inside it. Don’t settle for a fish bowl because it won’t be big enough for you to place other fishes with your Discus, should you want to later on. The minimum tank size for your Discus fish aquarium should be 55 gallons.
- Choose the right Water Filter. You can either purchase a bacterial starter culture or a cultured sponge filter. Both filters are very effective in cleaning the Discus fish aquarium. Just make sure that the tank doesn’t have excessive water flow, as this disturbs the discus fish.

- Place the water filter inside the discus fish aquarium. Turn on the water filter and make sure it is working properly. Make sure that the water flow is not that high, so that the Discus can be comfortable enough swimming inside of the tank.
- Make the water conditions inside the aquarium similar from the tank at the pet store. The pH level, water temperature and filter flow should be very similar to the tank where your discus fish was living, when you bought it from the pet store. Doing this will make it easier for your pets to adopt to its new aquarium
- Gently introduce the Discus to its new home. Let it swim around and get accustomed to the new environment.
- Understand the Discus’ needs. Once the Discus has adjusted to its new home, be mindful of any behavioral changes that it will show. Check it every day so that you will see if the Discus has adapted to its new home or not.
