1. Discus fish are very hard to care for, they have very specific care instructions. These fish are hard to care for but are very beautiful. However we recommend that these fish only be kept only by the advanced aquarium owner.
2. It is never a good idea to add shells from the beach into your aquarium. Introducing shells raw from the beach can add harmful bacteria and potentially new creatures to the aquarium.
3. Always use a new or clean bucket when going through the acclimation or water changing process. A bucket that has been used to hold bleach or other chemicals can be very harmful for the fish in your aquarium.
