This planted tank is very close to a biotope, I think. And it sacrifices no beauty :) That ancistrus looks just like Ancistrus cirrhosis I kept once. Brilliant. :thumup

Thank you guys, I made some new photo's yesterday.
Changed the setup a little bit, added some wood on the left side in the back and tinkered with the wood on the right, I think it's an improvement.

this was last week
Image

and this is after working in the tank, the discus have enough places to hide as you can see,
Image

one of my 4 Biotodoma,
Image

More Biotodoma,
Image

Sturisoma sp Festivum with eggs (again)
Image

see through with 2 hypoptopoma sp3
Image

how I look in my tank,
Image

the changed left side,
Image

and the right side,
Image

full tank shot with Discus,
Image

And this final photo of the ancistrus sp rio paraguay a day before I took them out of my tank.
The reason for this is that they eat the eggs of the discus and my sturisoma and that causes alot of stress in the tank.
I think it's a shame but I had to take them out and moved them to a 120x40x50cm tank upstairs.
Image

And the tank they are in now,
Image

That's it for now, hope you enjoy.
