USE AN RO SYSTEM OR WATER STORE

DON’T OVER-WORRY ABOUT WATER CHEMISTRY
Too many owners get stressed about water chemistry. In fact, some people are so worried about water chemistry that they use excessive amounts of chemicals to alter the water, and then these chemicals harm their discus. Of course, you should use the chlorine/chloramine remover and water chemistry tests. Do what you can to get the water chemistry at proper levels. But never forget: When you raise your discus on a healthy diet and keep them in a clean tank, they are resilent. They can handle a lot. You do not need to worry too much about water chemistry levels.
USE A SEPARATE WATER CONTAINER FOR WATER CHANGES
Use a separate container for water changes, and put a heater near it so that your discus won’t suffer a severe temperature change when you change their water. You can use a powerhead to circulate the water if it’s heated unevenly. Additionally, you can use the powerhead to pump the water into your tank.
