For anyone who uses python or aqueon water changer and has to keep water flow on to get good suction flow, i recommend this from Jehmco.



now i can drain half my tank in 15min and without wasting any water...

Dig it. That is a very nice school of discuss and a fine tank too.

I cant imagine how much a high tech planted tank would be. The amount of powerheads you would need for good flow, the amount of co2 you would need to pump out and most of all, the amount of ferts you would need to dose. Thats alot of work.

You need more reds though :p

First, amazing tank.

Second, you mentioned 40 Amanos. I got 40 Amanos for my 65 gallon. I love them, both just to watch and for their algae-cleaning. I live in Japan, and here they are called "Yamato" shrimp, Yamato being a traditional name for Japan.

(My Japanese wife and I agree that they are well-named, since they are such hard workers! They really do never rest.)

Anyway, I think a LOT more than 40 would be good for you.

Although, I just realized the Amanos might be Discus snacks. You would want to check on that first....

Nice setup you have going thus far!!! I really want to keep Discus, but I'm afraid to take the leap because I'm 70% sure I'd kill'em lol. Maybe I'll try next year, I've been in the hobby for over 20 years, and I'm still trying to "master" the planted tank side of the hobby. Most of my years have been spent keeping new world cichlids (pretty much all of them except for Discus).
