Nice!
But you don't have any midground and I would appriciate some steem plants in the background, eg. Eusteralis stellata, Ludwigia inclinata "Pantanal" or "Cuba". You'll for sure find some nice steem plant yourself
About the midground I don't reallt know what to use. Maybe it's the best way as it already is....

I'll not intend to plant any steem plants here. Sorry but this layout is for Discus keeping and low maintenance.
Let it grow and then we discuss this again You'll have a nice surprise...

For midground I have cryptocorynes, let them grow... If you look carefully for the bottom will see some cryptocorynes near of the rocks and the wood, it is a question of time!

Here it is an update of the tank: 3 weeks after setup

Hi there,

that is truly spectacular, one of the nicest if not the nicest discus aquariums I have seen. My only negative is I couldn't read your blog lol does it come with an english switch?

Hi Darren,
Thanks for your kindly words
Regarding my blog, yes it has a switch or similar... You can use Altavista Bable Fish Translator (Portuguese to English)... I know that some words aren't translated, but I think that you'll understand the meaning

Here it is an update of my tank with 26 days after setup.



Regards,

Filipe Oliveira

Beautifull tank, my hat is off to you. What is that weird looking glass thing on the right hand side of the tank? a co2 reactor?
