120 gal planted discus grow out tank

I thought that I would share some pictures of my tank. Its a 120gal tank that is fully planted. Im showing some people that you can grow out discus in a planted tank. Its harder but it can be done. Let me know what you think of it. Sorry for the bad pictures I dont have the best camera in the world.




I hope you enjoy them thanks for looking.

Whats this green fuzzy stuff thats growing in my tank.

When theyre 6"+ then you can say you succesfully grew them out in a planted tank. Yes you can grow discus in a planted tank and keep them healthy but only to a certain size. Very unlikely you can get them to 6".

I agree...Trying to grow out discus in a planted tank will ultimately stunt thier growth.

Nice lookin tank though.
