They don't seem stressed. They spend most of their time cruising the tank picking at plants and the wood. They all hide in one spot in the back if startled but no darting around. If I am in the room...

These are 4" Red Turquoise from Discus Hans. I live about an hour from his warehouse and he was kind enough to let me come and hand pick them. They are in a 90gal tank that I have had set up for four...

Agree, the tank looks great, but a little to symmetrical for my taste.
Just one question: why so much water flow? It looks like you have four returns and 2 circulating pumps as well.

First tank photos

New Discus, in the tank for a week. Thought I would try some photos. One lesson, clean the glass and don't photograph after feeding.

With the spray bar I seem to get even flow with some very gentle movement of the plants. I suspect that the 700 gph pump delivers much less then that given the four foot rise. There was a chart with...

I was interested in your post as we have similar tanks. I am no expert and started my planted tank a little over three months ago and I am about to add Discus this weekend.

With so much water agitation over the bio-balls/medium doesn't the C02 get "off-gassed"
more rapidly? Do W->D filters inherently require more C02?

What about the flow rate/dwell of the Aquatop, does it match with a 9w UV to give more than just level 1 algae sterilization? Or do you have to reduce the flow?

Eco Complete. With that macro it might appear to be a little harsh for Cories. They don't seem to mind digging in it and show no damage to their "whiskers".
