Got my discus! :D

And some new plants. Discus are still a little shy and trying to get use to their new tank. I have tons of plant species in my tank and doesn't really look natural but I'm doing an experiment and just bought some plants, let it grow and see which ones will look better in my tanks and transfer the other plants in my other tanks.

Cool fish They look beautiful. You're really making me want to bite the bullet and get some. Wait, nevermind. I spent all my money already! Really though, they look awesome. Tank looks pretty awesome too!

Thanks! I just need to add 2 more discus and that's it. I'm not going to add any more tetras or cories. Lol! Me too, I spent all my money. But don't we always have money for anything fish related? My tank is so relaxing, it's making me fall asleep whenever I look at it.

Thanks. Tell your wife that the 6th tank is hers and you'll help her manage it. Lol. Goodluck!
