Hello All:

As my beloved penninsula is FINALLY going to be given back to your truly so I can start my Salty there...I first have to create and set up the new home for the discus and angels in the current tank.

This is the start of it I will post videos and pictures as I go along...I am open to any suggestions.

So here is the view of the current tank

And today after about 3 days of running we started with the initial plants...I know it is not perfect but the big wooden feature of our existing tank is somethin we want to move the this tank , but that would be the last thing we do as it is all the way to the bottom and when we pull that out of the existing one with all the movement the tank is not going to be stable...we will by then have all the fish out in a holding tank with their water for now and I will be then moving it and trying to set it in this tank without making it too muddy !~

Ok so , planted , CO2 installed, 3 fish in it for initial cycles....current parameters all good, PH a bit high 7.5 still but the wood, plants and co2 should bring it down though...

I’ve always loved discus! I’ve never figured out why throwing them is an Olympic sport though o_O
