congrats for the green hand!
keep us informed about progress in this tank
successfuly got rid of beared algae that appeared, now crypts and p.helferi are melting
Think I will take out the sand in front of the tank, this way I hope to keep the tank free of food wastes. Otherwise I would need some corys or what else to take care for the food wastes - but dont wont more fauna in this tank.
Any pictures without the sand? I think that would really change the look which is great.
No, no pictures without sand. I had to put it in again as my discus were afraid of the reflections produces by the blank bottom .. This time I put in a thin layer, only to cover the bottom of the tank. This way the food stay in the front area of the tank and I hope to get my P.Helferi again as healthy as it was before discus arrived. I´m rescpaing my nano cube - So I settled all the inhabitants into the discus tank.
4x kuhli loach
Cardinals are hiding in the rear area, luckily the ancistrus and the kuhli loaches take care for the food wastes discus left over, specialy the kuhli loaches are a good choice for this job as they collect all the little pieces from between the stones lane:
Today bought a digital thermometer, will replace my old one.
Love kuhli loaches! I call them the clowns in my tank. Now that the plants have grown up I don't see them very much anymore.:boo:
My Kuhlis are very active the whole day, they love this tank as there are thousands of holes and gaps between the stones. As my focal point are the discus I only feed them in front area and Kuhlis didnt shame to come out and to have part. Think I will add some more of them to keep the tank free of food wastes
Yesterday I have spent almost the whole day with wet hands.
Replaced the old java fern with needle leave fern, purchased from Supercoley, thanks Andy :* Also replaced most of the fissidens with christmas moss.
Took out HC and replanted P.Helferi, Hope it will grow again, otherwise will be replaced with some other plant too! Added more white sand in the front.
Pictures will follow soon :hi:
HI, sorry for no update so long.
There ist so many to report about that I didnt know where to start ...
Well first of all the bad news:
My Santarem Diskus jumped out of the tank over night and as I found him next morning it was already too late.
Valisneria Tiger is taking over, will defently never use this plant again, it is a pain!
12x Corydoras Panda - my new cleaning crew
in the near future I will take this tank down and start a new 120x60x60 430liter new planted Diskus tank instead of it. My LFS was so friendly and offered my to take care for my Diskus and their community.
shame about the discus
got any pictures?
I don't know I did I miss this thread. Simply Awesome Scape and plants selection for a discus tank. How about a current picture of the tank?

Nice tank mate, there is a great sense of depth considering the actual depth you had to work with.
As promised here is some new stuff on this tank, todays feeding action:
