I am setting up a 72 gal. Bow front tank for Discus. I want to use plants but am considering fake plants in case the Discus get sick. I don’t want the plants to die if the Discus were medicated for disease. I assume that plants can be changed out if the Discus were medicated. If fake plants are fine, what type of fabric texture should I purchase in order not to damage the Discus?
It is true that many chemicals will kill the plants. You are right using fake plants can avoid the medication problems. You will purchase from the pet shop specially meant for aquarium. You need not buy a lot of fake plants.
You would decorate the tank with big stones, small stones and gravel. Drift wood would also make your tank look attractive.
