    And take a pic all the way back, so we can get some scale of this setup. I'm planing to build a tank with that length and height. Those fish are beautiful man.

    You will make me swear on a public forum. Those wilds are just awesome.

    One day when I'm retired and have the time to sit in front of my aquarium, the whole day, I must defnitly do something like this. Also I will have the time to be able to keep the maintanance up for a aquarium like that.

    It is an AquariaSA tank. They are in Natal. I had it shipped to my house when I did the reef tank thing many years ago.

    How do you have those plants on the top? Are they hooked with something? Want to do that with some pothos an sweet potato but not sure how to do it.

    The tank has bracing so I used pieces of driftwood and stacked it at the back using the bracing.

    Surely after 11 pages of info and pictures, this thread should move to Members Systems :)

    hi, wonderful tank. Those discus really are incredibly beautiful fish.
    Wish I had the opportunity to keep discus, meanwhile, I'll settle for rams.
    Mind me asking where you got your rams, they look superb.

    The Rams I got from Marco du Toit. He supplies Pet Stop and Aqua Empire as far as I know.

    You have a point but its entirely up to @Nico Hamman

    With all the info on discus, i would rather suggest it goes under the Discus forum for ease of finding it
