First of all, because the soft water is variable, the pH of the water should be continuously controlled. The pH value can be measured by the hydrogen ion composition. The ideal pH value for Discus is between 6.0 and 7.0. You can enlarge healthy discus among these values.

Secondly, the conductivity of water is concerned. There are substances, salts found in water dissolved. The high ion concentration in water makes the water more conductive.


The conductivity of salt water is high. Discus waters have low conductivity. This is usually less than 50 ms. The degree of hardness of this water is essential.

The complete removal of salts in the water is called decarcation, softening or desalination. Water softening is very important. Cation Exchangers remove the carbonate of water. Calcium and Magnesium are taken from the water.
