Daniel Posted August 8, 2020 Share Posted August 8, 2020 (edited) I don't think the discus tank is good for shrimp. But that might not stop me from putting some in. The temperature is 84°F and the pH is slightly below neutral, conductivity is low because it fed with RO water. Almost nothing in the way of plants, except for a couple of newly planted starts of Jungle Vallisneria that have yet to get going (and might never get going). There is a little bit of some short felt-like bright green algae that grows on the wood in the upper foot of the water column. Lots of mulm, lots of drifwood and colonies of blackworms living in the sand. I don't care if the discus eat the shrimp eventually, in fact that would good, but currently something the size of a cherry shrimp would be way to big for the discus to eat. I have thought about scuds also as I have loads of those. What would be the purpose of the shrimp? I would hope they would eat uneaten Vibra Bites that drifted into hard to get to crannies, and also provide a food source for the discus. Is there a shrimp that would survive under these conditions?
