I'm setting up a discus tank, I was told to cycle my tank with rams and some corys but everywhere that I've read has said nothing about rams. Is this a good idea or will that be a bad combination when I get the discus?

I saw at the fish store that they were together but fish stores can always seem to do whatever they want and all the fish will be okay- I think it's some kind of fish store magic. :?

any other discus info would be awesome- i plan on setting up the tank this weekend and putting corys (?) in it in about a week, rams in it whenever the water balances and discus in it around june.

is that a good idea? if not what should i do. I'm not planning on breeding them- they're just for show.

Bio Spira is a waste of money. Do a fishless cycle with pure ammonia to save time. Here's a link to reffer to. http://www.tropicalfishcentre.co.uk/Fishlesscycle.htm
Why do you say that? I have set up numerous tanks with BIO-SPIRA, immediately added fish, and all fish are still alive to this day. Tank set up over a year ago. ;) I think it is personal opinion on favoring, but whatever works for you. ;)

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. Just offering a cheaper alternative. How much does it cost where you live anyways?
I am not sure. :? It couldn't be that expensive or I would not have bought it. :lol: I think it is probably more price efficient when setting up smaller tanks, as where I purchased it; they sold it in 10g increments I believe. I imagine it could get pricey with larger tanks.
