My Nature Inspired Discus tank

Unread postby leon » Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:38 pm

Not sure if this is the proper subforum but I would like to show you my Discus setup.
This is a low tech setup, I started with 3 month old Discus in October 2013
The background in the tank is DIY as is the cabinet around the tank.

(old photo of the cabinet)

First about the tank;
Size; 200x80x60cm
Sump; 160x30x40cm
Eheim canisterfilter 900l/h

The fish;
6 red turquoise Discus
30 Nannobrycon Eques
27 Hyphessobrycon pulchripinnis
29 Corydoras Sterbai
3 Dicrosus Filamentosus
3 Hypoptopoma Inexpectatum
2 Loricaria
1 Sturisoma Festivum
1 L066
1 L unknown
I hope to add a few more Hypoptopoma soon and maybe a few L333

Thank you guys.
I forgot to mention the plants for those who are interested in a planted discus tank.
The tempature of the tank is currently 28.5 degrees celcius.
The first 6 months it was 30 to 31 degrees celcius.
The plants I use are mostly Echinodorus species;
Echinodorus Bleheri
Echinodorus Ozelot
Echinodorus Magdalensis
Echinodorus Osiris
Sagittaria subulata
Heteranthera zosterifolia
Hydrocleys Nymphoides
