Jose, I happen to have a bunch of left overs from the client's tank, Blue diamonds, Yellow albinos and a Flamingo red.

They are about 3-4".
I have about 10-12 fish left.

They already went through Q and eat any frozen food offered.
Some nice Geophagus would look super in there.

How is the tank going? This tank is an inspiration and yet it is so simple.

thanks for the inspiration

After seeing your tank i made me re think what i am doing, love your work, I found your post while researching my arduino controller for my leds, i have no previous experience and am started to feel that i have my ambition an my ability mixed up yet again. Did you write your own code or borrow someone elses, I have a long road ahead, can get a led to fad, to dim and to blink. Now have to work out the real time, a 24 hr program etc, just wished that i was not a dumb arse carpenter, any help would be great

Wondering how the sump is working for you? I'm contemplating setting up my first discus tank and would rather use a sump than canisters.

Wow! Thanks for digging this up Jimbo!

This has got to be one of my favorite framed aquariums and certainly top of the list for hardscape only set ups. I really like the low profile look of the canopy cover.

The lighting is spectacular.

But jeez, you must be very diciplined. No way I could resist not planting some crypts or swords as a minimum! Some of the rarer crypts around the root base would be very interesting.

I am putting this thread in my bucket "ideas to steal later"

I am so curious what this tank looks like now? Absolutely stunning. Awesome Roselines. Incredible filter system you put together. Very inspirational
