Would gladly do that but sadly I don't have any hope for the fry to survive in my tank and.. it's a pain to catch fish in my tank to seperate the pair.

Finally caught discus laying eggs in the tank!

This is one of the three pairs which started spawning about 3 months ago

Hey guys!
Rescaped my tank recently after about 4 years. Removed a few woods to create more open space

This setup is good and even better than the previous ones. :-bd
One thing could still be done though and that is having a bunch of Vallis on the right end where the Discus group is seen hanging around, may be place inbetween the two branches that look like brackets. The height of the tank is very right to house this aquatic-grass that will not only add to the sense of security for the Discus but also provide a feel of volume, decreasing the amount of negetive space present, in the process.
Also, the Discus seem to be scared of the beautiful Green Terrors( ? ) who are occupying the whole real estate. Their fast movements contradict that of the mellow Discus that is causing the Discus to be pushed around.
In the end, its upto the keeper. Hope it rocks :ymparty:
Great job \m/

One more thing. This tank of yours is just the ideal type to stage a show for the school going fishes to present a lovely group dance for us to watch. Increasing the number of schooling members would be better. If it were my property, I would have gone and excluded the beautiful looking Green Terror(did I Id them right?). Just the traditional setup with live-stocks that go with the Discus whcich I guess is the nucleus of this aquarium.
Also, even distribution of light, reaching the corners, bright enough to say "thats Orl Korrect". This requires experimenting.
In my opinion, beautiful aquascapes from the internet must be gone through to create a better looking stuff, given the possibilities with this "big guy".
Bring out an amazing & rich "Amazon" feel with it.

Thank you [SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

Those big fish are Geophagus winemilleri. Earth eaters. They'll dig up any plants in the sand. So cant plant in the sand.
They are peaceful and don't bother the discus or the small fish. The discus just get outta the way if necessary.

The most aggressive fish in the tank are the Garra. Chases every other fish away if it's in the mood. Lot of space in the tank to accommodate them all
