How to set up a breeding tank
The OZ Discus team explains how to set up your Discus breeding tank so that your fish have an ideal and safe breeding environment.
At OZ Discus, we use a 140L tank for our breeding pairs.
Where you place your filters is key to creating a safe and welcoming environment for your breeding pairs.
Make sure you place your filter near the top of the tank to create surface agitation.
You also want to place your filters far away from the breeding cone to reduce water movement. If there is too much water movement, the male Discus will not be able to fertilise the eggs.
Ideally, you want less water movement from mid tank downwards. This will allow the female Discus to lay her eggs on the breeding cone and the male Discus to fertilise the eggs easily.
Placing a marine pure block in the tank will help to keep the water stable.
