Planted Barebottom Aro/Discus Tank

This tank is 1 week old though Ive had the fish for over a year. I will get more plants as the weeks follow and hopefully my plants fill in soon. No co2 just using organic carbon because I have lots of large fish in 75 gals. The bag of gravel to the right is to keep that driftwood down till it gets water logged. anybody have suggestions of pinkish-redish plants that will be fine in 2wpg and no co2? already have tiger lotus, sunset hygro, red foxtail, rotala indica (coming in green :/ )

Here is a link the pics dont work http://www.arofanatics.com/members/v...edtank1stweek/

Nice aro and discus, what's holding the stem plants down? Are you going with a substrate later or no?

I've never heard of anyone keeping Discus and an Arowana together. Hope this works out for you. Good luck!

Because we dont belong to the site "arofanatic.com" we can't see the photos .

Try hosting your photos on "photobucket.com". I'd really like to see this tank .

Here's what we are seeing

wow! amazing! that looks really really awesome. You dont even notice the lack of substrate. Are the blue (snakeskin?) discus in the far right of the last few pictures breeding? It looks as though one of them is always defending a little patch between some driftwood.

That looks really awesome. The arowana doesnt scare the discus?

You're in my heart, you're in my soul, you'll be my breath should I grow old

All the plants are in pots with flourite gravel. Planning on putting peat moss in some of the heavy root feeding plants. dont plan on using gravel for the whole tank. I like keeping my tank clean and gravel hinders that.

Hehe no, they were suppose to be a pair but they just keep fighting. The blue snake (male) just attacks the female.

when tying java moss, try using cotton black lines. provide some space as not to get attention.
