I love wild discus. Is that an 8th fish in the back right corner? A friend gave me 10 juvi red turqs and I'm trying to imagine how full my 125g tank will look if I keep all into adulthood.

Yes Bill thats the 8th one in the corner. This will give you an idea of what 8 adults will look like anyway.

Mark, the tank, and fish look great.
Must be loving the low-maintanance.
Isn't this running on like 108 watts or something with no CO2?

Yes it is running on 48" worth of 108 watts 2 54 watt 10,000k's I can turn on the other 2 to give me 216 watts, but the tank is new an I want to let it kick into gear first before I turn the other 2 on.

Thanks! I agree that wilds look much better in a planted tank than domestics!
