re: Filterless Discus?
This is bad idea, I think. Let me tell you why.
Sure you can keep fish in an unfiltered tank with
plants. You just can't keep AS MANY fish.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but historically
fish were first kept in unfiltered tanks. With the
advent of filters they discovered they could keep more
Now, why not Discus? Because they are big, eat a lot,
produce a lot of waste, and are hyper-sensitive to bad
water. Not a good combination. Filtration is so
cheap and easy, that there is no good reason not to
use it, IMO, if you are keeping discus.
I have recently decided not to try and grow out discus
in planted tanks. I'm going bare-bottom, but that is
whole nother discussion.
