    Hey Paul, it's quite possible that your water parameters are suitable right out of the tap (once dechlorinated). Discus love stable water even more than theoretically perfect parameters. Unless your water is really really hard or the pH is really really high you might be able to just dechlorinate it and get it up to temperature.
