    You can get it at Sears or Menards and places like that. I've actually used thatpaint before on metal. It's really good stuff. And it's simply spray on. I'll be eager to see how you like it when you try it on your hospital tank!
    Thanks fishmommie, I'm glad you've used it before and like it...I can't wait to try it, makes the thought of possibly going bare bottom a lot more visually pleasing.

    I know I know!!!! It'll give me a real time frame to get the rest of the stuff in together like order the manzanita wood and then figure out how exactly to "hang it", decide on the lighting (only going with low light plants), practice the "sand like" painted substrate effect, study up on sump filtration to figure out what size pump to go with (Cliff gave me a great link), order my heaters and a uv sterilizer, bio max media, plants..gonna need lots of java fern & anubias & amazon sword and have to find riccia and rocks I need rocks, gotta make some caves...

    On hanging the manzanita, you could drill a hole at the hang point and put a metal rod or wood dowel through it and just cut that to fit on the tank edges.

    Ahhhhh, I like that idea, that way I could easily slide the wood on the rod for the placement I want in the tank..Brilliant!!!!! Thanks Sandz :D

    I'm looking forward to this Journal, I'm surprised I didn't see it earlier. Firstly I applaud your diligence in doing your research beforehand and not jumping straight into Discus, secondly, thank you for the compliment on my tank earlier on :)

    I agree with Sandz on pretty much everything he said. For sourcing your discus I second his recommendation of Discus Hans for Stendker Discus and Kenny's Discus for regulars.

    I apologize if I missed it but what temperature do you plan on keeping this tank at?

    Thanks so much, I honestly didn't consider Discus before seeing them in your tank and reading your journal..it really did inspire me to believe I could also provide a healthy home to such a beautiful species.

    I'm leaning towards Kennys Discus, have been drooling over the selection :p

    I apologize if I missed it but what temperature do you plan on keeping this tank at?

    I'm planning on keeping the tank at 84

    82-84 is perfect. Stable and high enough that discus will thrive but it wont hurt the other fish.
