After I got done with it- I went for the all natural look- literally- just w/c's, almost no cleaning of dead leaves...

That discus tank is awesome gvt. I agree you should get some more, but maybe you're going for the whole very-low-bioload-low-maintenance route. Unfortunately all my fw tanks exist in the before time, in the long long ago.

I have a 29g planted tank. Not taking a pic of it right now becasue I'm having a algae infestation even after getting a UV light. (the 2 algae eaters can't keep up) might have to buy a few more.

Nice myrx7! How big is it?

As for my tank, I had a die out a few months ago, and am actually getting a discus tomorrow- I had them breeding and everything, but the big male died, so discus hunting I a go tomorrow! :P

Although I like SW more, I still like FW too!

Travis- that tank is deep!

Moving, simple, brings about emotion- you accomplished a lot with very little, it makes a statement... get my drift? :D

WoW!!! Nice Discus! What do you do wc wise? What are your parameters? I can barely keep discus alone, nevermind with catfish, parotfish, etc! Kudos wimby!

Heh... one of the problems of going open top! At least you didn't have a $50 discus jump out of a sealed tank (I still can't figure out how he did it!) He was curled like a potato chip when I found him :haha: poor guy.

I used to breed cichlids. Not discus or angels, just africans. My 20H (before it was a nano reef) had a breeding pair of Neolamprologus brichardi and their 20 odd offspring. I also had Kribensis, Pelvicachromis pulcher. Oh and rams, so they are South American. Also Neolamprologus multifasciatus. They are little shell dwellers. Since I got into saltwater I have kinda let my FW tanks go. I have two FW 10 gallons that are asking for SW, as soon as I have the $$$.
