    Hi folks,

    So I've heard plenty of chat about 'discus plague' and not mixing fish from different suppliers and not mixing Asians and Germans and so on and so on....but just how separate do they need to be? Clearly separate tanks, most likely different systems, but how about taking one set (Asians) out of a tank and putting a new bunch (Germans) in? Is time enough? A big water change? A total strip down, wipe and filter maintenance?

    In the end I hope to mix them on a system, but clearly there will be quarantine and some sacrificial lambs before I do all that.

    I'd welcome any thoughts.

    After the first few weeks you should be OK.
