What other types of tropical fish can be successfully kept with discus? Cardinal tetras are probably the best companion fish for your discus aquarium. First of all, a group of cardinal tetras are simply beautiful tropical fish. They are fun to watch. Cardinal tetras are also very suitable with the warm, acidic water that discus like. Finally, cardinal tetras are dither fish. Dither fish can have a strong calming effect on more timid, larger fish like discus. The small dither fish swim back and forth in the aquarium, out in the open. The discus notice that these small fish seem secure in their environment. That gives them a signal that everything is safe in their enclosed environment and allows them to come out into the open without any fear. If you ever have shy, skittish discus that always seem to hide, you might want to add a school of cardinal tetras to your aquarium.You should avoid keeping large tropical fish that can intimidate discus or will compete aggressively with them for their food. Fish like oscars, piranhas, severums and flowerhorns fall into this category.Another ingredient in our discus fish food is tropical fish flake food. We use it to bind the food ingredients together and to help dry out the fish food paste. The flake food can come in many different flavors like: Earthworm, Color Flakes, Spirulina, Egg and Krill / Plankton. We make small batches with different flavors of tropical fish flake food so the discus fish get a variety of taste in their fish food.This Book is for all Tropical Fish Hobbyists and enthusiasts.
