That is one cool tank! Aqua One makes some nice tanks. It seems any tank not made in the US is so much nicer. Why

Its 40inchx18inchx20inch= 420 ltrs
I've used fine gravel as substate
The filter is a wet dry inbuilt filter + a medium size canister filter
Its got 2 3ft T8 tubes + one 30inch T8

CO2 is diy 3 2ltr coke bottles interconected ,I change one a week in sequence .passing though a small er bottle as a bubble counter and into a small in tank power filter to break up bubbles (comes out as a fine mist that disoves before it reaches the surface ) giving me almost a 100% co2 convertion .I get a constant bubble count of 80-100 bubbles per min

I change 10% of the water every other day and add liquid ferts at the same time


Plants are
oponageton rididifolius
valis spiralis
crypto walkeri
cardinal temple (dont know proper name)
amazon temple plant(as above)
lilaeopsis braziliensis(micro sword)
hygrophila (wisteria)
bacopa
ambulia
java fern
and a plant known locally as pony tail
plus a few others

Fish stock are
4 discus
15 neons
2 bristle noses
3 rams
4 cories
the neons went into a egg laying frenzy three day after introducing them into the tank(the rams and discus loved the extra food, neon cavier lovely )
the discus are only half grown but putting on size fast
and the rams are displaying breeding colors and behavour so heres hoping

don't you think the discus will eventually eat the neons?

Thanks

Angels are supposed to eat neons, not discus. Discus and neons/cardinals are ideal tankmates.

Isn't that pretty much how it always is? Electronics, cars, etc.... I did see Fluvals new line of tanks and they are pretty nice though.

Tank looks awesome BTW.
