Nice scape but a few of those fish won't do well in the 60p. The angels and discus need a much larger aquarium. juvenile Discus need lots of water changes to grow properly. Keep an eye on that dwarf guarami.... It will very likely pick-on/eat shrimp, and potentially harass to the point of killing other brightly colored fish.

Yeah, I gave away the discus and just kept the angels and guppies but I accidentally left the filter off and outgassed all of my angelfish with the co2. I'm just left with the guppies at the moment. I might place them in my other tank and possibly get German blue rams if I can find any nice ones around here.
