Disease is a highly debated issue on Internet forums, in chat rooms, and in specialty magazines. Diseases occur often because many owners don’t know how to preserve their health. The ways to obtain perfect health are very simple and easy to accomplish: Keep them clean, well-fed, and loved. Follow those three steps, and everything should be fine.
Of course, it’s not quite that simple. Be sure that you do not combine your discus with other species they aren’t compatible with. An unfortunate co-habitation could have severe effects on both species.
Disease will stay away if you place them with fish that are smaller than themselves. One important caveat to this advice is that these fish cannot be catfish, as they have sucker mouths. This is dangerous because catfish will attach themselves to the discus, causing severe tissue injuries. Some environmental health problems can be solved by adding some medicine into the water, but this happens rarely. It is always better to prevent disease instead of having to cure it.
Health very much depends on nutrition; feed them enough protein and they will have all of the energy that is needed. Additionally, amino acids are highly important; these come from meat you feed to them. The only disease that may arise from feeding them live food is when you overfeed them and the leftover food causes water deterioration. This can lower the standards of the living conditions and potentially cause your fish harm and death. A powerful biological filter in the aquarium and regular water changes should help to ensure the health of your discus.
The most adequate method for water filtration, and therefore, preservation of their health is by reverse osmosis. This is possible with the help of the semi-permeable membrane inside of the filter that allows only water molecules to pass through it. It removes minerals, trace elements, and any other substance, producing pure water that is necessary for your discus. A few minerals should be added into the water to recreate the healthy environment. Keep a watchful eye on everything that goes on in your small ecosystem to ensure you fish are in a safe, healthy, and happy environment.
