I could be wrong but I think the intention is to only keep them there for a while as juveniles. if I'm wrong then you should really consider a larger tank.

to everyone im fully aware that this tank would not be nearly big enough for full grown or even half grown discus. they require a tank double the size if not larger for this. but like i mentioned originally im starting with juvies and when they become large enough i will then move them to a larger tank or sell them to a friend who is interested in larger ones. thank you tho for everyone's concern always appreciated!

im kind of leaning towards going back to a group of juvie angels now that i have a good flow in the tank again im finding more and more that i lack the time needed to maintain a group of healthy discus cause of school and work :/ tho angels rnt nearly as nice as discus they r still great amazonian fish species!

over all thanks for the compliments!

Default last pics of the scape

So i decided this scape could only go so far, and once again wanted a change. last night i took some pics of how the tank was looking before the change over. The blyxa has grown in nicely and have reintroduced co2 again even tho its only DIY right now. hoping to get a 5lb cylinder soon.

As far as the new scape goes i have removed all the wood and gone back to stone for the hard scape. i prety much did a swap from the 20g. i moved all the stone and rearagned the hardscape to utilize the Blyxa that was all ready established. i moved the rotala colorata from the 20g and put it in the back and used the java fern in the mid. super huge change over in the scape! cant wait for it to grow in! ill post pics of the change later on today. for now heres some of the last pics i took of the wood scape

That scene will be missed as it's just as you might imagine a stream
where a bush fell in at the edge. Sure beats plastic Roman Columns.

So i figured i might as well change this thread rather then a make a new one, and make it around my fish room! i have to many tanks right now to do all of them in each their own thread.


_DSC9511 by marioman72, on Flickr

So heres my new scape for my 29g and what its looking like right now. i have a strain of ick going through the tank and dosing medicine and turned the heat up to try and save some of the fish!


_DSC9514 by marioman72, on Flickr


_DSC9515 by marioman72, on Flickr


_DSC9517 by marioman72, on Flickr


in addition to the 29g rescape i switched the hardscape from my 20L and redid the scape while i was at it. heres a before and after of the tank before i took all the stone and moved it into the 29g. ill post a up a new picture in a few of the 20g rescape once i do a cleaning.

update

the 29g def needs a trim and now have a great pair of angels! i moved all the other fish into the 20g and now that's the community tank witch is growing in quite nicely the bald spots of the glosso are almost completely filled in.

Got a great new 5lb c02 tank for Christmas and finally just got everything set up and dialed in last night. as far as ferts changed over to all dry ferts from GLA. dosing potassium, iron, and micros. its good to finally have a good system going to my tanks!

when i do the trim on the 29g i might add in some drift wood for the angels and make the scape a little more natural. moss covered wood might be a good look for the tank and give it some more volume. dunno yet going to have to play with it.

The picture from 12/13/13 of the 29 looks good to me till I look at the one a month later and wow all that in one month !!
I often see tanks which people add that it's got this and that equipment wise and when they say CO2 on their list it
still doesn't give you the concept of how fast the plants grow with it till you view one like this where you get two
pictures a month apart from each other.
Just on a guess, is that part of those branches from the 29 in that 20L(9743) ?
I finally got a ten g right/free from a BGA problem it had and I'm resisting an urge to totally redo it now that it has
some good growth on some regular baby tears in it. Just that I know better. I need an idea as to how it might look
before I go messing/w it.
But you look like you don't have any lack for ideas about scaping them...great job on all really but especially the 29.

thanks for the compliments! but yea i reused some of the small piece from the 29g when i did the duel rescape haha. but i use to have a 10g last year actually i derimmed it and everything and was growing amazing had a diy co2 system on it with an HC carpet and limnophilia aromatica bush as the mid ground. but sadly the tank broke and created a hugeee disaster

BGA is always a huge problem especially when starting a tank up. best way to keep it under control is c02 and good water flow. but anyways i always get inspiration from takashi amanos ADA tanks on youtube! always a great way to study good composition of a tank set up from viewing a master. and the international composition too is always a good start for ideas! just a couple suggestions as to how i get my brain moving. good luck!
