    I didn't think of small tetras getting sucked into the intake, good call.

    Seems like you've done your research on Discus and it also sounds like this is not your first Rodeo .

    Again very nice Tank.

    Believe it or not, I didn't even know about the fish cycle before August, I did a lot of research before I even began to plan this tank and I settled for Discus because it seemed like a challenge. This is my first aquarium I really managed from ground up and it reinforces the rewards this hobby offers when I hear such nice compliments on this tank, so thank you all again.

    On another note, I observed the behavior of my rams and it does seem like I have two males and two females :] Two of them have the trailing points on the tail fins. Also I noticed that the males are showing a little aggression towards the females but it doesn't seem like anything too worrisome yet, if it is, let me know.

    Question regarding the rams, is it normal for them too eat the sand and spit it back out? They are eating otherwise but they seem to hover around doing this sometimes.

    Here's a close up of one of the males from this morning


    And here's a side view, sorry for the glare.

    bolivian rams are related to the eartheaters, and just like them they will sift sand for food, so the behavior you are seeing is normal. in fact, their genus name, mikrogeophagus, can be broken down into mikro, geo and phagus, meaning small earth-eater.

    ^ thanks man, that explains it.

    I noticed my albino bushy nose is making caves and tunnels in the sand under the driftwood, also the amount of crap he puts out literally covers the floor of the tank, I think I'm going to transfer him to my pond and turn on my UV sterilizer to manage whatever little algae there is.

    For your new tank I would get the Rummy Noses and Cardinals (big schools of both) unless your going to use the same type of filter.

    Another good combo is Lemon Tetras and Cardinals.

    An African themed tank would also be neat. There are so many different african tetras besides Congo's available nowadays.

    Have fun with what ever you.

    Thanks man I appreciate it, I'll start another Journal Thread when I'm ready =] I'm leaning towards ones with a heavy planted substrate. Possibly just transfer the emeralds in there, add some more, and then get two more Discus for the 150.

    Picked up this giant sword yesterday, not sure of the type but I'm guessing either Radican or Oriental? I could be mistaken



    Hopefully it aides in setting more natural barriers in the tank, I also removed the Albino Bristle Nose pleco, made way too much mess and thew sand everywhere on the driftwood.

    Pretty sure this is going to be my last update for the year, I added a Hydor Korallia 1050GPH powerhead for added circulation, comes on twice a day for 20 minutes at a time, an hour after feeding.




    Ordering my heaters today but I'm not sure which I should get, either two 250W jager, or a 300 w Fluval E series which has the guard protector. My temp in the tank without a heater fluctuates between 80- 83 degrees throughout the year so I won't need to raise the temperature that much.

    So what should I get guys? tank measures 5ft x 2ft x 2ft

    Are you going to be adding more plants in the future?? Your discus seem to be crammed up in the drift wood because there's almost no cover for them...

    I'll be adding some more to the sides, the picture where they're crammed by the driftwood was taken late at night after I switched on the lights to take the pic, they got scared. They're out most of the time, especially after I added the giant sword in the middle.
