My 29 gallon tank

This tank was supposed to be a sw tank but I got fed up with it because it took forever to cycle. So I decided to turn it into a planted tank.
Specs:
Aquaclear 30 hob
Sunsun canister filter
150w heater
Aquaclear 30 powerhead
Floramax substrate
Diy co2
Current usa satellite plus led lights on order

Its not finished yet I have more plants coming in, the only fish I have in it now is a bolivian ram.

I actually decided against the led plus and went with the fugeray r clip on lamp. I decided to move my discus pair into this tank.

The discus look a little too big in my eyes for the tank, but as it has been said that pairs do fine in a 29 I won't tell you to remove the fish. I just wouldn't do this stocking myself...

My only thought is breeders tend to use bare tanks for breeding. The wood seems to take a lot or room.

Planted some new plants in today. Removed the discus and put them back in the 75g, right after I put them back they laid eggs right after damn it. So I dont know what im going to stock in this tank.
