Yeah, I think at this point I'd rather the planted tank and community, as opposed to the discus. That is, if I HAD to pick. I am hoping I'll be able to maintain a small group when the tank's mature.

I like a variety of fish too much to do solely a species specific tank, I think.

But thanks for the input, it's nice to hear from someone how has first had experience with discus. When you did keep them, did you even have them in a planted tank? Did it get too difficult to keep the water as clean as it is needed to be.

Also, the natural pH of my rain water is about 7.2. I would like it lower, but it would be more stable here... Do you think that would be suitable?
