    hi all

    Not sure if this question has been asked before but here goes,

    I am in the process of buying 5 Juvi discus from a breeder, now i want to setup a completely new tank and filtration to grow them out, now i normally use tetras to create the cycle , but also worried these fish will introduce unwanted bacteria or diseases into the new tank, is there any other safe methods to use?

    Seed the new setup with some filter media from your other tanks.
