What Makes Your Tank Unique?


The tank gives off a sense of serenity, the sand bottom and a gentle water flow keeps it very clean looking. The driftwood was found by my son and I while canoeing the upper Hillsborough rive north of Tampa Florida. So always looking at it makes me think of that day with my grown son and the wonderful time we had that day.

It has a calming effect on anyone that sees it. Friends and neighbors always comment on how natural it looks. This is my first discus tank and very proud of it.
