new territory

Hello, I'm a new member to this site; but a long time aquariast. I own many tropical tanks presently ranging from 70 gal. to 10 gal. All of them aquascaped. I recently started planning how to build out a very unusual tank. Its dimentions are 48in. x 60in x 18in. Im estimating this tank at 225 gal. I believe I am ready for discus fish, 12 discus is my estimate. Because it will be planted and odessey doesnt make a light that large, Im planning on using a hydroponics sun lamp that rotates. Does anyone see any immediate problems with this? thanks, Copper

Welcome to the site. I'm a saltie so I can't really give any feedback. I just wanted to say welcome. You may want to post your question in the General Hardware/Equipment section.

Welcome to AA! I do keep discus and as long as you make sure the tank is well cycled before adding discus, I don't think you will have a problem. Make sure the discus have hiding places to escape from the light.

As you can probably tell, I've not learned to maneuver this site like a pro yet!

Wow ! -- I am a newbie...period. And that question just blew me away and shattered what little confidence I've accumulated while on this site. Good Luck with that massive project and welcome to the site. I can tell you (from personal experience) that if it is information you want - you came to the right place. The people are way cool, know their stuff and really care.
P.S. Are you required by law to have a lifeguard for a tank that big?
