30% water change, once a week. I clean the internal filter (1800l/h) every week though. It sucks up everything. Very high flow so i face the outlet almost directly at the glass.

I've had horrible luck with planted tanks paired with discus back in the day. Eventually moved my discus to a bare bottom setup. Whatever you're doing, keep it up - looks great!

Discus tank needs a trim...but to be honest, I really like this rougher look.

I suspect I wasn't fully removing all debris when doing my countless water changes - obviously more difficult with deeper beds and heavily planted scapes. It didn't help that they weren't adults either. Seems like you have all things in control though
