What Makes Your Tank Unique?

I love the hobby and I love Discus fish ever since I was a child, I have kept other aquariums before but I can say this is my greatest achievement since it is not easy to find balance between a heavily planted tank with some hard plants alongside the king of the aquarium, the Discus. It is still a work in progress and I could have done a better job in the aquascaping but I’m enjoying keeping it like this and really taking joy on watching these magnificent fish.


What Do You Like Best About Your Tank?

The thing I like the most is maintaining the tank and taking care of the plants and the fish. Specially I like the bond I created with the fish when they collect the food from my hand – it is a one of a kind sensation the trust you can build with these animals despite on how small they are. When they come to my hand I feel humbled by Mother Nature to allow me to be this close to them and take care of them the best I can.
