Whoa, that's some serious manzanita there sir. You must have dropped a pretty penny or two on that beast.

I spent 47 shipped, not too bad i think. I even have enough for another tank.

Really bad news though, all of my tetras died overnight, but all of the corys are totally fine. I am really confused, I didn't think that leaching tanins into the water could kill fish? I was pretty devastated this morning cause I lost about $50 in fish. Oh well, I guess you learn. I should have done a better job cleaning it I guess, but I am still confused as to the reason why they died and the corys are doing just fine....any help on this?

Let me know what you think about the plant placement? Too much plant mass?

The Colorado Aquarium Society had their biannual auction today and I wanted to go to find some dwarf south american cichlids. A guy was there selling some that he had personally collected while in peru and bred them here in Denver. They are Apistogramma cf. eunotus "fin stripe". I got 6 juveniles and they are sure cool fish. I will get some photos posted here soon of them. My stocking has now changed a bit with that random die off of tetras so now it will these apistos, 8 bronze corys, 10-12 cardinal tetras, and 5-6 discus.

Thats funny...when I saw you added cory cats to a brand new tank I was bracing myself to read on the next page how they were all dead. Seems to me that these guys need to have a pretty good food source and a nice, mulmy substrate to be fat and happy.

Guess everyone has their own experience. Things look like they will be awesome. Waiting to see it planted.

the corys are the only ones that survived. It was all of my new tetras that i put in. My corys are doing great and eating well. The tetras died from too much tanic acid in the water? I have no idea. I put some driftwood in there and the next morning all my tetras were dead. I have never read or heard of big die-offs from tanins leaching out? could there be other things that manzanita leaches?

Thanks! I am still trying to figure out what to do about discus. denver tropical fish wholesale here has some good looking juveniles at about 3 inches that with the sale right now I can get for 20 a piece. There is also a breeder in town that sells them for $10 an inch on most fish. I know the wholesale place brings there fish in from thailand and the adult fish they have there are pretty spectacular, but this is my first time buying discus and even with the research I have done on selecting young discus, I still don't trust myself 100%. I have read that young fish shouldn't have the same coloration as the adults do, but I am not sure what they are exactly since there are many variations in the same tank. Mail order just might be too expensive for me right now, any tips would be appreciated greatly when it comes to picking out fish.
