So I've had this tank since the end of August. I found it on craigslist, and was to good not to buy it. It has turned out pretty much just how I wanted to to be.
this is what it looked like before it was taken apart and move to my place. Anyone for some Anubis!

So there's 6 discus in the tank. a large 6"+ diamond blue male, 2 other diamond blues, a Goldern checker board, Carnation pigeon and what i think is a snake skin. There is also 16 tetra's, 6 julii corys, a pair of albino bristlenose plecos. There should be 10 CRS, red cherry's, and 5 black rile shrimp.

Thanks Rick. It's been a bit of work to get the plants all happy in the tank. Im still battling some slim which is poping up on the glass, re-opens and the dwaft hair grass. I'm real happy how the discus are looking and acting. I might be wrong but it seems to me that there could be 2 lots pairing up, big blue and a smaller one and the goldern and the snakeskin (if it is a snakeskin).

Thanks dkjmeaden, and Dogface Puffer. I really like your Brillant blue you have for sale Dogface Puffer, I was thinking of getting it before, but the tank is getting tight for room and they all need to grow out some more
