Hi robertrobert905,

Welcome to APC! Nice video of the Discus but really didn't see much of the tank. Maybe you could post some pics? I am glad you joined us!

thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I don't have my camera with me at the moment so I don't have pictures that I can share, but I recorded quite a few videos of my tank ,you can see the rest on my channel. This video gives a better view of the whole tank, but the quality is average

is this a shameless attempt to get more views on your youtube or do you have a specific question regarding how to improve your tank?

like what should i do to make it better, if you are trying to say that it looks good the way it is then I will take that complement. And what is so wrong with wanting more people to view my aquarium? I didn't spend all that time on my tank so that only I get to look at it.

Honestly, I wouldn't do anything different with your aquarium. Your plants look healthy, the fish are vigorous, and they've all got plenty of space. You've got a good foundation for a successful long-term discus tank there.

Cheers,
Phil
