These are the fish waiting for their new home

Wow! That tank is -- shiny! Brand new and full of promise. Gorgeous looking fish, too. I'm sure that they'll love their new home.

I was actually going to leave it with nothing in there but I thought it looked a little plain. I like to see some green and brown in the tank. Thanks for all the kind words. I will take more pics once the fish are in. Now I need to fill the tank with more fish!!!:D

Thanks Shelley. Yes they love all the new space. Discus fish are quite fast swimmers. They need the exercise.

Very nice size tank and perfect for discus. However, being shy fish your discus my appreciate some sort of background. Also, there is a school of thought out there that believes that a proper background could reduce the peppering in fish.

cheers,

The 180 looks beautiful. The plants stuck to the wood really helps the look.

I am sure your Discus are loving it :) who knows, they might pair off and breed for you in the near future :D

Nice & simple set up !!!!

Just need to add more discus to increase their sense of security, or the big one will soon exercise his/her authority.

nice clean setup. i like it.
Thanks. That's what I wanted. I have other planted tank and it gets to be too much sometimes with all the substrate cleaning and dosing with fertilizers CO2 etc. Thought this one is gonna be hard enough just with the water changes alone.

I still like the looks of the green and brown that the plants and wood give. Here's hoping they will pair off. It will be a great experience to go through.

I had no idea. I have some smaller ones in another tank but I was waiting till they get bigger. I may have to add them soon. Thanks for the info.

very nice set up!...regardless of a background... the discus will pepper because of pigeon strain...besides the background of the wall is light enough...once the discus settles down into their new home,they should have less peppering...:D
