What a Dream For Me!
Howdy Tom,
I just looked at your pics and your work is magnificent! Man, I'd love to have a set up like yours.
One thing I'm always interested in, is HOW do you and others that have huge tanks , DO WATER CHANGES? No one has ever said. I'm curious. There's another blogger here ( Discus Fan ) Ray is his name from the Chicago area. He's planning to become a Discus Breeder! He has a 210 display tank. Tell me, do you make your own water or do you have an R O system and a water storage tank? I use R O water but, I go and get it every week. I always keep 50 gallons in reserve, I have 11 five gallon bottles I get filled when needed. It's why I don't have Discus. I bought some from a store around 25th and Clement and they were all dead within a week? I was heartsick and decided that Discus were out for now. Maybe when I retire and have more time? I'd love a bigger tank but also WE don't have the space ...YET LOL!
You should also check out ( Chastity's Angels) She's done a magnificent job as well. Well take care Tom. I'm definitely leaving a vote!

Added a few new pics. It looks like two of the discus may have paired off...

Thanks!
Thank you to everyone who has posted such nice comments about my aquarium set-up and fish. I have 9 Discus and have completed my additions and spending time with the aqua-scaping at this point.

Any feedback is welcomed. Some challenges I am having are:
(1) balancing temperature at 78 so that it is warm enough for the fish but low enough for the plants
(2) regulating temperature on those hot days/nights and
(3) keeping tank clean/water quality high and ground cover to grow.
