Can't wait to see new updates and especially when you have your fish. Sorry if I caused you to change from discus to angels; still some angels are really spectacular.

Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

More the merrier with Roselines. Personally, I would [& did ;-P] get 10 or 12.
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Okay so I missed a lot in the two days since I commented about the info on Rose Lines. As far as I know Rose Lines do not have an enormous bioload. However being they can reach 3 to 4 inches they do have quite a bit of bioload compared to other schooling fish. I'm not sure if that info still matters to you as you're not getting the Discus. However, if I can, I would like to recommend getting more then 6 Rose Lines, they're gorgeous and will really look better and be happier in a bigger school. In my own opinion, and if I had your size tank, I'd go for a school of 8 or 10. They're very much like torpedo shaped rainbowfish. They love faster currents, however can stand a slower current of an average community tank, and the really like being in larger schools. And I really think your tank could handle it.

I've also read that Roselines love a fast current. They adore it.
I'm not sure angels do though.

Ahh ok. Well they should be ok then.
I've seen them and read about them but not kept them myself. Not the same at all, but, I've had dwarf rainbowfish and they seemed to relish swimming in the current. I remember upgrading my filter to a stronger one and they must have spent three solid days playing in the current, almost obsessively, with flushed colours. Very odd.

Cermet: No problems. The only thing you guys did was help me to realize that I’m just NOT that dedicated to raising such a sensitive fish. I like them, but I need something that I have time to really enjoy, instead of worrying about all the time.
Firefly: That is a good possibility. We shall see.
Sandz: Those are very pretty! I’ve never seen those before.
Carapar: I’m thinking about 10 now.
130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.
