Well I'm starting to look into changing my tank over to a Discus setup. Looking for any helpful advice with this transition. I started the questions up over here:

Converting 90 gallon Rainbowfish tank to a Discus tank...What would you do?

Feel free to post in there or on here for any guidance on this. I just want to do it all right the first time and not have to constantly go back and change things up. Thanks!

This is really looking nice with the foreground filling in. Not sure how the glosso will like the higher discus temps.

I am a fan of backgrounds and think this tank would benefit IMO.

Looking forward to the evolution!

Thanks tom! The discus idea is on hold as my dog tore her acl so we have to take her in for surgery which isn't cheap. So needless to say, my discus funds got depleted quickly!

Just purchased another LED+ fixture for the tank today. Put it up just a few minutes ago and it looks a lot brighter! Hopefully my glosso fills back in now. I'll post pictures up as soon as I get a chance!

So I'm a little overdue for the pics with the second LED+. Here's some updated tank shots:







Sorry for the low quality. I'll get some with my camera when I get some free time for some better pics.

The glosso is starting to fill back in. I've added some cabomba and some dwarf hair grass in there as well to help fill in the gaps and to blend the different plants. Thinking about taking out the amazon sword but don't know what to put in it's place or let the crypts fill in. Also thinking about taking out the large anubia on the driftwood on the left.

Cleaned up the tank a bit today and re-arranged some of the plants. I also leveled off the front of the substrate and sloped it towards the back. Removed the java fern and moved the large anubia so it grows with the driftwood instead of straight out. All of my plant trimmings are up for sale in the sale section if anyone is interested.

Here's how it looks right now. Once the tank clears up a bit I'll get some better pics up.

Been a while since I last updated. Water is a little murky from messing with the plants.

Thanks! It seems like it takes them forever to get big. 2 of mine still have a little more growing to do.

So I just purchased my 3rd LED+ so we will see how the growth does with it. Just put it up a couple of hours ago. Really brightens the tank up!

Have a lot of work to do yet in the tank. Have to trim the plants up in the back right and want to re-arrange some plants. Also want to get some new red plants now that I have more light. Any recommendations?



Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic.

Hey, you're local! Any chance you go to TBAS meetings? I'm planning on hitting my first one on the 14th...


Tank's coming along! How about a C. wendtii 'bronze' and a red lotus? I'd recommend Ludwigia repens, but that plant hates me so I'm boycotting it (LOL)

I am local! I have not gone to them. You're talking about the ones at the Florida Aquarium correct? I've thought about going to one to see what it's like but just haven't had time to and always forget about them. What time is it at on the 14th?

Thank! I'm still learning everything. Been going at it for a few year as but I still haven't gotten the wealth of knowledge to create the depth of the tank with plants of all. I will look into those for sure. I was at Marine Warehouse tonight since they were out of cherry shrimp and needed some but they didn't have any red plants that looked good. Figure I'll take a look again when I bring them more shrimp this weekend. I'm definitely going to look at your recommendations though. Thanks again!
