Hey guys
Finally added new fish to the tank yesterday :D
200 harlequin rasbora and 100 rummy nose tetra
https://youtu.be/WrL2DckikT8

Video taken a few hours later
https://youtu.be/kIETgd5tJCI

Can't wait for them to colour up.

Removed the golden panchax as soon as i noticed them trying to eat the harlequins.

The discus and the big Geophagus winemilleri show no interest in the small fish so far.

Removed 7 of the smaller discus from the tank ( It was all that we could catch after an hour inside the tank:D Wanted to remove 10 of the 30 discus I have) And also removed 25 female Congo tetras I had.
So I finally got a chance to measure the discus. The two smallest runts I had were around 4". The other 5 that I removed were 5" to 5.5". Most of the other discus are around 6.5" the largest one in the tank is 7" 8-)
The discus were much bigger than I expected :) They don't look so big in my tank from the outside.

Will post pics soon

Thank you :)

It's been 15 months since I got my 30 discus at around 1.5". They are probably 17 months old now. Removed 7 of the smaller ones from this group. Might remove 3 more of the smaller ones. The largest ones are around 7" :D

A few pics of my discus before I removed the smaller ones
