What Makes Your Tank Unique?

The 45 discus and 10 foot long tank is already unusual. But it is pretty rare to see discus schooling together, just like they would in their natural environment. I am able to get that schooling affect in my aquarium. I have also created a very low maintenance tank which makes this even more unique as I am currently growing out 45 discus and feeding them 12-15 times a day. The water is kept in perfect condition through an automatic water change system I created as well as the powerful filtration and circulation system I have. It’s a bare bottom so I created a circle flow with powerheads that takes all of the detritus straight to the filter inlets.


What Do You Like Best About Your Tank?

The schooling of the discus with the almost zero aggression in the tank makes me know that my discus are happy which makes me happy.
