Wow! Anne, that looks great. It really makes the discus' colour pop, and the plants look nice and healthy. The new lighting looks really natural.

Very nice Anne. I recall a time when I had jungle vals in my tank. I loved the way they created a canopy over the top of the tank.

GORGEOUS! I love your tank! Beautiful placement and lovely fish as well! I want something very similar and am gearing up but have to get the husband on board....still working on that part. Your tank makes me want it all the more.

Very nice job!

Thank you very much for all the kind compliments. It means a great deal. It has been a serious learning curve for me and I've enjoyed the learning process. Now I understand what other planted tank folks mean when they say that you just can't stop with the plants.

I love the graceful way the Vals drift over the surface. I can see this tank is going to be amazing
