What Makes Your Tank Unique?

My 55 gallon planted discus and angelfish community tank is an Amazon river basin inspired “ biotope” aquarium. It has a new pair of discus fish, returning back into the  discus hobby after a 2 year break from keeping discus. My tank has 6 angelfish, and community fish such as cardinals, Cory’s, 3 Bolivian rams, and 3 glow fish. I do a weekly water change of 25% each weekend. Tank has been running for 4 years.


What Do You Like Best About Your Tank?

It give me a sense of pride and joy that I get to create an underwater world for the fish. In addition its my therapy after work, enjoy watching fish swim which relaxes and calms me down.
