200l planted discus tank rescape-updated 12.3

Hi all!
Last week I decided to rescape my tank and tried to create a NA style aquascape.
I'm not so happy with the resault especially because the rocks, here in Israel it's hard to fine good rocks.
Any way, I would like to hear what you think' any suggestions\ideas to improve?

that's how the tank looked like before the change:

Very nice tank, I like it a lot.
What is the temperature of the tank with the discus in it? I know discus need high temp and plants don't really. I'm setting up a 100G discus planted tank and I would like to know what your experiences are with the tank before and now, especially the temperature. Currently, my discus and plants are in two different tanks of their own.

I like both the old and the new scapes. Looking forward to the growth on the new scape. Lovely fishes too. Are you planning to add any more discus?

Patience is the name of the game.

I hate to say it but that was a great looking tank beforehand..
That being said, I'm sure you'll grow this one out to be quite nice looking. I highly doubt the first tank was an accident.

I also really like how you used the wisteria. It's nice to see some of the easier plants used in a scape, and not just to get a tank started.

The temperature is between 27 to 28c.
Well, I found out that it's not so hard to grow discus at planted tank like some people think.
You just need to pay attention more than regular, give good water conditions.
Of course it's not recommended for people who don't have experience with discus and planted tank separately.

malaybiswas, I'm thinking about adding 2-3 discus.

BTW, I hope I don't have many english mistakes
