Really great for making it yourself.

Disco = Discus in English. :proud: Your English is very good by the way.

Very nice tank! It's interesting that you're going to be using a cooler. Is it really that warm in Rio de Janeiro? Most people here have to use heaters since discus prefer temps between 80-86.
