Newer member - Pics of new Osaka 260 Planted Discus Tank -

Thought I'd share a few pics of my fairly-newly set up planted 70 Gal. Osaka discus/display tank.

3 weeks ago I picked up 9 Forrest juvie HB Red Snakeskin Discus - youngsters, barely 3.0". With 4-5 feedings daily, they've put on a little 'beef' and their coloring is beginning to shape out. Within the next few months, I'm told their bodies will take on a deeper red throughout, with darker blue finnage, with body bars all but disappeared.
Looking forward to that, as well as the development/growth of the aquascape. Hope it all goes well.
If any of you have any thoughts, ideas, comments, suggestions - positive or negative - please let fly.
Here's 2 links:

the second link is full tank shots.

No CO2 - Just API fert root tabs every few months, along with semi-weekly low dosing of Flourish Excel & Comprehensive Supplement. Plants are all doing well @ 84F temp in the discus tank.
