Thank you

I already have 10 neons and 18 ghost shrimps in the 10g. I'm already overstocked. No space left for the danios.

We could debate that!

I saw your new discus tank build thread. Will be anxious to see what you do with that tank.

It's bare-bottom. My friend has a BB discus tank and his discus are almost the size of a plate. I was told you can only achieve that in a BB tank because you have to feed them at least 4 times a day, doing a PWC sucking out the leftovers and waste at the end of the day. If I hit that goal, I'll put them in a planted tank

A few pics update. It looks empty now because I got rid of most(90%) of the star grass and ludwigia, trimmed the amazon swords and spread out the blyxa. Added 2 red tiger lotus and one more stem plant(I forgot the name). It looks like star grass but leaves are thicker and IMO looks better. I hope it will look better once the new plants fills in.

Still looks great, Roy! Love how the front is really filling in with the blyxa.. What is the plant you have on the right again? Really love how bushy it is.

Thanks Alisha

Are you talking about the right side or left? The right looks empty for me. The plants on the right are amazon swords, star grass and ludwigia. The one on the left is hygro.

Love the tank. Looks really good. Someday hopefully I could have something half as decent.

Looks great! How do you clean the gravel with the plants over it? Thanks!

Oh ok, I don't know that much about planted tanks, I only know that in my fish only freshwater, I siphon the gravel. So what are your normal cleaning procedures? Thanks, I am considering changing my fresh to planted.

I do 2-50% PWCs a week because I have discus. I usually just changed the water and clean the glass once a week.
