    Truthfully Id really like to push it and try out Serpae, they offer such awesome contrast to the wood and Vals...it would be worth the risk if it worked. I also have the means to remove the tetras should things not work out. I am doing some additional research from others who have had success with Serpae and Discus.

    I will be picking my sand up hopefully the end of the week, then the tank will be flooded by next weekend. I will possibly plant over the weekend as well...fish to be added soon after with seeded media of course.

    Here's one more fish to pitch to you. They are pretty new and seem to be gaining popularity. They are so new they don't have a scentific name yet; just HY511. They llok alot like Rosy Tetras with more white. Just a suggestion.

    Those tetras are pretty...I was however looking for something a bit more bold in color.

    The tank has now been filled...the wood naturally floats Ive got some weighed down with rock and the 2 taller pieces are kind of wedged down with the rim of the tank. Water is cloudy due to the sand. I will say that HTH pool filter sand from Ace is actually very nice...very comparable to Caribsea Torpedo beach sand. And for $13 for 50lbs versus $20 for 20lbs I think I will be using this stuff a lot in the near future

    Red Spotted Green or any Tefe would be great... I have a new love in the tetra world, the Ruby Tetra...
    ... also where are you getting your wilds from? I know a few guys that are direct importers here in Fl and they are great at getting pairs.

    Also I have always loved Lemon Tetras and Penguin Tetra's in discus displays.

    The Ruby tetra is indeed a beautiful fish but they stay at or under 1'" so they might provide a snack for the Discus.

    + 1 to Lemons and Penquins. If you like Lemons you might consider this fish if you can find it (still pretty new).

    Very nice set-up. The wood looks so natural. How long did that configuration take you MCHRkiller?
    I know embers are small and my Rams some times followed them but they stayed nimble and out of reach. A tank of Discus, Embers (the orange ones not the white), and some Cories would be neat to see. Mind you the Embers would need some plants to have as protection. I don't think I've ever seen a Discus eat another fish. But then again mine were smallish and by themselves back in the day.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

    Those H.heliacus are incredible...now I am sure finding them will pose a challenge. I also really like the Ruby tetras. Great suggestions, thanks! I am not yet sure where I will source my fish...most likely from Snookn21 on aquabid...however I may also see what Jeff Rapps has when I am ready to buy. If you have any suggestions on a supplier please send them my way.

    It took me about 15mins to place the wood...I was lucky enough to send my tank specs and what I wanted to a guy Ive bought wood from many times on Plantedtank.net and he hooked me up with a selection of awesome pieces. I just picked out some which I hoped would work and wound up with the present scape. This 56G column is surprisingly super easy to scape...most cubey tanks are a PITA but the extra length on this one makes the difference.

    15 minutes and it looks great, that is the Jenn Zenn in action. Throw everything in and it looks great and makes me jealous. I am looking forward to watching this tank develop.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Sadly no updates to report; the wood has still not sunk. I dont want to screw it down to tiles so I am waiting ever so patiently.


    I am also using the time to really consider what I want my "tank future" to be...there are species I have kept in the past which I would really like to re-keep. Some of my current species I am kind of done with for awhile. I have considered selling all of my present stock at the old house except for my male Rotkeil and O. Still unsure of this but it has definitely been a thought on the front of my mind the last week or so.

    I am also considering what tank scapes and species I would like to have. I am oddly excited about a tank the SO has requested...which is a goldfish aquarium. Somewhat of an oddity for me...however I have been eyeballing a specific ADG goldfish layout and I have grown to really wish to recreate my own version on a slightly smaller scale. Here is the tank which has sucked me in:
