Here ya go I had to go into it and cut and paste it in paint since I'm at work and dont have access to my files. I'll go back and edit them if they come out bad. I also didn't post a picture of each individual discus i have since I figured this was a plant forum.

Here are the rest. This set up isn't using CO2 after the holidays I'm going to pick up a fully automatic system.

Pretty! I've always enjoyed a multicolor discus mix.

Everyone loves an algae ball.

Is your substrate sand or gravel? With all of those fish do you find it hard to keep clean? It looks nice in these pics.

My substrate is torpedo beach sand. The tank is surprisingly easy to keep clean. I'm not sure where all the fish waste goes. I siphon 10 gallons from the tank every 4 days and the bucket barely has any waste in it. Even when I move stuff around to look for it. I have the plants you see there I'm not sure the names cause so of the ones I had didn't do so well in the temp or ph I'm guessing. Could have been lack of co2 I know its not lighting.

I have the following fish:
8 Discus
2 Gold Rams
4 German Blue rams
1 Tiger Pleco
1 King Tiger Pleco
1 Bristle Nose
3 Cory
6 Pristella Tetras
4 Cardnial Tetras (had 10 think the Discus are getting to them)
1 Bamboo Shrimp
2 Algae eatting shrimp (amano) 3 If you count the one that's made it into the wet/dry without dying and is living in there.

Gee, I was thinking to take out 3 rainbows and put 2 discus in my 72 gal. I had no idea you could fit so many discus in about the same size tank. Is that not overloaded? How long have you had them?

General rule of thumb is 1 Discus per 10 gallons. I have 75 Gallons plus a bit over 5 gallons in my wet/dry. I've had them since august and they've been growing like mad. I had one go from 3 to almost 5 inches now. As long as your filtration is good and you don't slack off on the water changes you'll be fine.
