    Default Just a couple of pics...

    Just thought I would share a couple of pics of my set up with everyone. Unfortunately as you can probably tell one of my discus seems to have recently damaged it fin by the front rays. Hopefully it should heal up OK. https://imagebin.ca/v/44DEWmE8zHoo https://imagebin.ca/v/44DFWuND8VHW https://imagebin.ca/v/44DHiitUbsNh. I plan on adding more to this thread as they grow and develop.

    My tank is a standard 4" * 2" * 2". It is running a 3" sump using the anoxic filtration system with a 1320gph pump. Bit hard to see in the pics but there is 16 discus in the tank so it is a very stocked tank. Unfortunately my first batch of discus ( the white butterflies) didn't grow as well as I had liked, I have since found that the Bin I had used for water storage must of been what was stressing them out. Now my 2nd batch (the turqs and reflection deeps) are growing nicely. I also have a 2nd pvc filter I created on the right, this is full of kitty litter. I added that filter so I can use it to seed tanks in the future.

    Very interesting set up. If you have time to do a really indepth set of photos and info on your system I think it would make a thread.

    I was a bit hesitant to share pics of my sump, and heres why https://imagebin.ca/v/44Pi69TbkoG9 I know, it's a complete mess, but its functional. In there I have 6 BCB's, however to get them out because their so crammed in their sometimes I have to tip them on their side and some spills out, hence why theirs kitty litter spilt inside my sump. I have a DIY overflow, which I litterally put together a couple of hours before going away on a holiday, hence why its all unpainter. That just leads to a filter sock, which is kinda just crammed behind all my BCB's. I also have a hang on back filter with a sponge and some carbon and a little seachem purigen. Finally their is a OF Hydra filter which I haven't actually changed the cartridge in it for about a year, so way overdue to do that LOL. I know its not the prettiest setup, it was neat and tidy when I first set it up but its kinda gotten pretty messy since then.

    lol.. You probably never saw a pic of my fishroom before I tore it down. A good friend of mine described it as "ordered chaos"

    Just thought I would share a quick update on my discus with the injured dorsal fin. I was going to post this on the contest however I seem to be having trouble uploading pics to the forum. anyway, here is before https://imagebin.ca/v/44DHiitUbsNh (photo taken on the 5th) and after https://imagebin.ca/v/44gDsOP9flXz https://imagebin.ca/v/44gETXwvdce0 (photos taken tonight, on the 9th). Sorry about the blury pics, he didn't seem to wanna co-operate and just wasn't facing in the right direction most the time.
