tpl*co - Thanks alot for the compliment! Yeah,my tank has alot of viewing angles so it made designing really a big challenge for me .My main focus was viewing from the front and from the right side where the living room couch was. But my tank had 2 other slanted sides as you can see from the pictures. It was my parents who picked the tank because i was away on an overseas trip then and they wanted to suprise me. The tank was originally for my arowanas which have been given away and viewing angles then wasn't a problem unlike now.Hope you can get some ideas from my tank then. There are also many other much beautiful tanks here in the forum so you may want to refer to them as well.
As for my angelfish,it is no longer in my tank because it had passed on about 1mth plus ago.I had it since 5 years ago when it was only about the size of a table tennis ball. The discus are later additions in the form of juveniles. When my angelfish was still alive,it could get along pretty well with the discus though there were some mutual chasing around both on the part of the discus as well as the angelfish. But i believe this is natural,judging from the fact that these fishes are slightly territorial. There wasn't any visible damage though. I guess it is up to the individual to decide if you would want to keep them together. Some may find the occasional chasing around too much of a hostility and i am sure that there are stories out there about severe infliction of injuries. But at the end of the day,it is up to you to decide if you would like to give it a try. Similarly there have been stories of angels being incompatible with tetras but the fact is,there are still people who have had success in keeping them both together including myself,so yeah,hope that was the reply you had hoped for=)
And just to let you know,my discus are also chasing one another around,lol.
I really envy my fishes and plants,they seem to be getting so much more attention than me. Shouldn't i start pampering myself a little more?
