Been a while since I last updated. Water is a little murky from messing with the plants.

Cleaned up the tank a bit today and re-arranged some of the plants. I also leveled off the front of the substrate and sloped it towards the back. Removed the java fern and moved the large anubia so it grows with the driftwood instead of straight out. All of my plant trimmings are up for sale in the sale section if anyone is interested.
Here's how it looks right now. Once the tank clears up a bit I'll get some better pics up.

So I'm a little overdue for the pics with the second LED+. Here's some updated tank shots:
Sorry for the low quality. I'll get some with my camera when I get some free time for some better pics.
The glosso is starting to fill back in. I've added some cabomba and some dwarf hair grass in there as well to help fill in the gaps and to blend the different plants. Thinking about taking out the amazon sword but don't know what to put in it's place or let the crypts fill in. Also thinking about taking out the large anubia on the driftwood on the left.

|JEden8||Just purchased another LED+ fixture for the tank today. Put it up just a few minutes ago and it looks a lot brighter! Hopefully my glosso fills back in now. I'll post pictures up as soon as I get a chance!|

This is really looking nice with the foreground filling in. Not sure how the glosso will like the higher discus temps.
I am a fan of backgrounds and think this tank would benefit IMO.
Looking forward to the evolution!

Well I'm starting to look into changing my tank over to a Discus setup. Looking for any helpful advice with this transition. I started the questions up over here:
Feel free to post in there or on here for any guidance on this. I just want to do it all right the first time and not have to constantly go back and change things up. Thanks!

Nothing major has changed with the tank. Took out the Hygro in the back left and added some Jungle Val instead. I'm battling now a really bad case of detritus below my glosso and starting to cover my plants after my vacation. I also added 10 Pristella Tetras and love them so far!
Here's a tank shot:

Well here's an updated shot of the tank:
The glosso is starting to fill in really well so I'm excited about that! I'm not liking the background plants at the moment. Looking for some ideas on what I should use particularly for both of the back corners.

Tank looks great man, and congrats on the new baby girl!
Your tank has gone thru so many changes! I would suggest getting some turquoise rainbows, to add some deep blue color to the tank. I just recently added rainbows to my 90g also. You have at least one female in there right? As you probably know the males show colors better when there is at least one female in the mix of things.
The baby plecos were and are extra cool, especially to have a spawn in your tank like that. If you are looking to get more angels I'd look to aquabid.com or even ebay, as some good breeders can be found there that are relatively local, (US based).
That java fern you grew out was amazing! Your plants seem to do quite well. I bet it's the co2 and the good lighting. I could never get my ferns to grow that much in the period of time you showed in the pics. My tank is low tech though, so there you have it.
You weren't using Prime all the time to remove the chloramine? I just buy a big bottle of it off ebay for around 58$ shipped, and I'm good for a couple years, for my 90g and my 125g.
One more thing, the wood addition was and is a great addition to an already great setup. Keep on growing those plants, and fish!

Quick update on the tank. I picked up 4 new Boesemani's but unfortunately I lost two of them already when they were being quarantined. One was perfectly healthy but the other three had some issues going on with their gills. I also unfortunately lost the angel fish to the lip fibroma disease it had going on. Here's a quick snapshot of the tank:
The Glosso is slowly starting to fill in. Not as fast as I was anticipating it would. It's been a slow progress so far. I think I'm in need of some new bulbs.
