    a planted Discus tank, isn't like their biotype. i saw so many photos of it, it was in my head to do planted.

    but, not only have i grown to like the plant less tanks i've seen on here (SOME OF THEM), having a planted tank is something of a PIA.

    plants take care just like fish, and when you get them going good, you just make more work for yourself to maintain them.

    and don't be afraid of Discus, IME experience other more common LFS fish are much more fragile.
    Even if I try a planted tank eventually, I'll almost certainly be quarantining and growing out the fish in a BB tank.

    I really appreciate all the good advice I'm finding on this board. As mentioned earlier, I'd prefer to live all these mistakes vicariously. I've made enough of my own w/o a repeat performance if I go into discus.

    Thanks all,
    Spike

    Rather than be redundant with pics, because I do not have any new ones, but I will take some soon... I have a thread regarding lights on my tank and the difference with an without... Maybe if a mod has it they can link you, or you can look up my posts...(snip)
    I think I found it here: http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...ighlight=light

    Are all your posted pix with your lights on? If not, which are w/o?

    Thanks,
    Spike

    Al, I am going to take you up on the offer soon. I just got my tank 2 weeks ago. Build a stand last week. Decide to cross brace the glass tank for safety this weekend. I will get in touch with you. Appreciate your help.
