    I read the box that the filter came in. It says that it is 490 GPH. I have 2 of the same Eheim canister filters (Professional 3e/2078) working in this endeavor.

    One has an approximately 3 foot spray bar, and on the other, I have the outflow nozzle pointed so it hits the back of the aquarium. I guess it would be pretty close to your 1000 GPH. The current that I have going at the present moment seems to be effective with the discus.

    The problem I have right now is the brown algea forming on the plants. I need to get some more current going in the mid section of the tank to keep food particles off the leaves of the plants. I need to work on this subject some more.

    This tank will always be a work in progress, but it keeps me busy. I really enjoy working and learning all I can to make this tank something that I cam be extremely proud of.

    After reading your post, I have to admit that I am speechless. If you could pull this off, you would be none short of brilliant! I am wishing you the best of luck on this endeavor.

    Like other replies I am sure, I feel that you do not have enough filtration going on. I have a 125 gallon tank with discus. I am working on planting it very heavily. I have 2 Eheim 2076/78 filters going, and 2 sponge filters. I still feel like I could go with another Eheim. I don't feel that anyone could ever over filter a discus tank.

    With my setup, I still clean and remove water at the rate of 50% everyday. That may be overkill to some, but it is what I am used to.

    Again, the best of luck to you. I hope that you keep us all posted, and I hope that you will be willing to give up your secrets if you are able to make this dream a reality.
