The tank will be nice once the hair grass fills in and should be fairly easy to care for.

Good layout.

I love the simplisity of this tank! You have done a brillant job with the layout. I love Discus as well and hope one day when I have more time and money to setup a tank for Discus.

Did you get rid of the Discus? I really like your choice of wild strain Discus over the tank-bred.
