Sand is siphoned out and replaced about once a month or so, the top layer anyway.
Those are small Pavifolius swords, not Repens.

This thread still live? The more I've searched through different examples, the more this is the look I wish to next work from for inspiration, and I finally have the room for it finished, so time to start filling that empty reserved corner with a nice tank.
How clean does the white forefront sand stay by the way in a tank like this, anyone? I was thinking of adding a powerhead or two on a timer which are angled towards the front of the tank and which would kick on for say 20 minutes twice a day and hopefully blow any detritus into the back? Would/could this work to keep it looking relatively pristine on a day-to-day basis?
What are the foreground plants peaking over the driftwood by the way, is that Staurogyne repens?

Owner does most of the work himself and has it down pretty good.
If he needs changes, he'll contact me, but that's been a couple of years now, so things are going good or a New Guinea Headhunter got him(I'm serious). Would not be the 1st close call he's had.

We made several feeding dishes and I suggested the white sand front years ago, he finally got around to doing it. Feed well but frequently, that's one method. Keep the tank clean is the other.
So 2x a week water changes, say 75%.
These fish where raised in Bare bottom tanks then added after they where large well eating adults.

Question for you, I couldn't succeed at keeping discus in a 270 gallon planted due to their need for copious amounts of food to stay nice and thick, how are these discus being fed? I imagine the regime would be
