New Feature! Planted Discus Tank, Click Here To See The Details!
These articles, written
by Max Pickering were originally published in the British
Magazine 'Practical Fishkeeping', Europe's best selling fishkeeping
magazine. They appeared as a series, over a three month period,
entitled 'Discus - Their care and breeding'. I am grateful
to the editor, Steve Windsor, for his permission to reproduce
them here, as the magazine held the original copyright.
The articles were written in 1986
and whilst I realise there have been many developments over the
years, particularly with strains of Discus, Filtration and Reverse
Osmosis, I hope the reader will find some relevance. Particularly
if you are new to the hobby, I wish you every success with the
'King of the Aquarium'.
