If you got it from a pet store, and it's an actual fish tank stand that fits the dimensions of your tank, you should be fine. I wouldn't think a pet store would be able to sell a stand that's not...
Absolutely stunning tank! I would ask if the discus get stressed with all that activity but seems you've had them for at least a couple years. Did you grow them out, or get them as adults? One of...
Any update on this? I'd love to see some new pics. What did you decide on substrate? I've never heard of sump filtration pulling from the bottom, but I could certainly see any fine substrate being...

I second the rainbow suggestion. Just be sure to get at least 5. Also, watch out for the ones that are perpetually grey. I had some where all of them were grey except for one. He was grey only...

Here's a link to another video from the weekend. It's short (15 seconds thanks to instagram's limitations). I wish I would've gotten this senegal from TWS as well, alas he was from petco (blush)

Thanks! I'm interested to see how well I can get them to grow. After getting them and reading more on raising discus I'm seeing that the preferred method is bare-bottom tanks and little to no...

I got the first three over memorial weekend and the next three last week. Go ahead and hit me with the questions about quarantine... I didn't do it :14:

Thanks slap! Considering all the aquariums I've had, this one is in the running for my all-time favorite (of my own, of course... I still see tanks here and elsewhere that I drool over on a pretty...

Took this video last night. I have 6 Discus (all from The Wet Spot) an Angelfish and a Senegul Bichir. I just fed them so...

I just can't believe it's taken me this long to finally make it there... the drive is only an hour forty-five. Crap, don't die on me slap!
I'm pretty proud of myself, though. Last night my wife...

Right on, thanks Rocksor. I'm probably going to drive to Portland to The Wet Spot again and get another 3 for $100 and call that tank good!
I do have sand and I'm trying to keep the "food...

Thanks Judi! I will post some pics hopefully later today. It is a 75 gallon tank, so considering displacement due to aquarium decor, and the fact that I do have a single angel fish and a bichir, do...

Thanks! Would 6 full grown discus be OK in a 75 gallon tank long term? There will also be a single angel and a foot long bichir...

I ended up getting three discus. I couldn’t help myself! I got an orange pigeon blood, a royal blue and a royal turquoise. They range from about 2 inches to about 3 ½ inches, not including fins. ...

Oh no, the angel awkardly tried to escape from the acara... which was pretty funny to watch since the acara is a tiny fraction of it's size, truth be told, but my wife was pretty bothered by the...

Well it didn't work. My wife really likes our new angel (it's pretty much full grown) so I guess it's off to a new home for the FM. Even the Blue Acara was getting in on the action, albeit a lot...

I went to one of the fish stores in town and they had some large Angelfish... they looked full grown, and it would easily be the largest fish in the tank. Any thoughts on adding a large angelfish? ...

I also want to give a shout out to Rocksor for helping me in a previous thread :22:
05-19-2015, 08:27 PM
Still trying to find that finishing touch!
I've got a Senagul Bichir, a Firemouth, and I've decided to also keep my Blue Acara. I had originally planned on getting a large Discus, but have...
05-15-2015, 04:10 PM
Im hoping if i get a discus thats quite a bit bigger, and already prefers mid to top (am i right that this is where they usually hang out?) And being a completly different shape that the FM wont see...
05-15-2015, 03:28 PM
Apparently discus and rainbow sharks are no good together, with rainbow sharks eating away the discus slime coat. I dont think i want a tank full of discuss, im looking more for an "oddball" style...

pH is 7.2. Thanks for the reply! No intentions of breeding. I just want a stunning, healthy fish :thumbupright:
05-14-2015, 11:33 PM
Water temp and pH keep the discus from being a possibility ... I knew there was a reason I couldn't entertain that thought, but I keep "trying" to forget. Shoot.
What are some thoughts are all...
05-14-2015, 11:16 PM
If I could have it all, this is what I'm thinking as of now. Firemouth, Dinosaur Eel (the 12" kind), Rainbow shark, discus, and maybe an angel fish if there's room.
Plenty of filtration (3 large...
