That's great! Python really helps a lot with water changing. Mostly if you have a big tank.

Are you planning to breed them? I don't have a RO/DI unit. I have a CO2 system to lower the pH(pH monitor set to 6.4) and peat to soften the water and lower the pH as well. I going to order 6 super flamingos for my 55 soon(see attachment) and i already set up 4 breeding tanks in the garage.

Those are gorgeous!
I will be towing with a blue/green discus theme, and housing them with some rummy noses and sterbai.
And the ro/do is for the SW, but I can use it for the discus tank too to help keep levels correct. Driftwood helps lower my local water ph fairly well, but I don't want to count on that only. Definitely going to be going with a. Biotope though. And I can
T wait for my plants to start filling in soon. I STILL need a good ground cover plant though...
Also....are you growing your guys out in your planted tank? How do you handle that??

There's a lot of great looking blue/green discus. Rummy nose are nice. I have all kinds of cories with my discus(temp. 85*F) and all are fine. The temp doesn't seem to bother them. So, if you want other cories, you should be fine. Unless, you just really like sterbai. I can give you some blyxa japonica next month. I just spread them out last week. I'll give it another month before I harvest again. Let me know if you want some. Free I hate throwing plants away.
