Thank you everyone! Im still trying to get my girlfriend to let me have the 210 gallon I have been eyeing haha! Would make a great Discus tank. Soon enough I'm looking to start back up a reef tank. Had to see my 72g bow front when I moved.

Tank is now almost 5 months old and looking great! Discus are doing wonderfully and eating like pigs lol. Plants have grown a lot with t5s and co2. I'll take some new pictures too.

Discus can be tricky, and yes they are pretty expensive. The wild blue was $60.00 and the marlboro was $110.00 but he's about 4.5 inches. Both are great fish and have great personalities. They eat right out of my hand.

Very pretty fish!

I am in love with discus, my fishkeeping life will be complete when
a) i get the saltwater tank i always wanted, and
b) have a discus tank

I love your tank! Your plants are spectacular and the discus are stunning!

My discus tank is now 6 months old and going strong! My only loss has been 1 Corey cat. All the neons and cardinal tetras are looking great and the discus are looking amazing!
