    Heya guys

    I wanted to ask i have a big discus about 22cm he has been alone with tropical community fish ( danios neon's cardinals pleco's and clown loach's )
    in my 4 FT tank for about 2 years now i was wondering i have a big tank i want to migrate all my discus to i have a few about 14cm big would it be possiable to move the discus to the tank and ensure the other discus's safety by doing this i am very Hesitant to do this as he is biger and im worried with been alone he might attack or hurt the lil ones. All the water parameters from the two tanks are almost identicle.aswell as the lighting and ground cover.


    Any advice would be Nice thanks


    Regards
    Highwash
    :p

    Just make sure there is enough hiding space in case of fights.

    Discus aren't always peaceful
