Major issues in Fishville
Had a leak develope in my magnum 350 that was not noticed until I had lost over 6 gallons of water. Soaked the carpet good. I have since transfered the aquarium out to the garage where I have lost a couple discus in the move.

All is well in the Aquarium, But I am thinking I need to remove the Guppies and get another Discuss. I think the guppies are agitating the Discuss and they are started to fight each other.

Lost my large blue discus last night, due to Hole in the Head disease. I was treating the tank for 3 or 4 days after noticing it, He didn't make it.

Addition to my tank
My Buddy gave me a tiny albino bushy nose (2") that he got at a fish auction. I have not had a Pleco in my tank for a couple years since I saw one going up the side of one of my Discus. I will keep an eye on this guy as he gets larger.

Growing population
Well, I grabbed a few (count 3) guppies from my daughters soon-to-be over populated guppy tank and put them in my Discus tank, I now have 5 sizable guppies and at least a dozen fry...
These things breed like rabbits

Thx for the response *s*
So you had 2 bichirs? I was wondering if 2 would get along together? Was looking at them at lfs today. Did you have any aggression problems with the 2 of them? Thx Jas

Aquarium Stand
My Dad helped me build the base 15 years ago. I built the custom top, I have better curtains in it now. Maybe I will get some new pictures tonight.

My Tank...
This tank had been established for over 4 years, with a move (apartment to my house) 3 years ago
I have had the blue discus for about 4 years now, the other 4 for 2-3 years.
Once the water parameters were good and the tank established, just minimum weekly maintenance. Water changes 20% or so a week is all that I need to do.
