Was thinking you just had a common pleco that hit 5-6in and you realized it needed a bigger tank, then I saw how big it actually was.

Keep an eye on those discus they arent looking to healthy, the two brown ones have stunted (the eye is to large for the size the fish is) and the blue one well yeah he doesn't look like he'll last to long...

Make sure you shop around when buying discus, look for top quality.

Looking good otherwise!
