Looks great, love the discus. You can probably get away with that amount of light, just keep your c02 and ferts on par with it.

Your tank is looking great, du3ce. Nice job !

Many of your pics show all the discus huddled in one particular corner though (lower left) - that could very well be due to the newness of their surroundings in which they're not quite comfortable yet.
On the other hand, it is possible the water flow from your 3 filters might be a touch too strong for their liking. Suggest you keep an eye on it to satisfy yourself they`re comfortably using the whole tank when they acclimatize for a longer period of time.

I don`t think your light is too strong - so I don`t believe it`s that.

I love your planted tank. As for the new discus build, I may be biased but I think the MonsterRAY would do wonders =) . If you have any questions PM me~

Man that looks amazing! I wish I would've considered Discus when I had to restock it just a few weeks ago. Your tank looks great and the Discus are beautiful... What temp are you keeping them at? How much water are you changing and how often?

That tank really tied the room together
