    If you are talking about the background, it's from Tapp Plastics.
    Very common popular distributor and usage. I bought the taupe
    color, which is between white and tan. Almost light grey. With the
    tannins from the almond leaves, it works out great. I have it outside
    on the back.

    territory. I also have some colored led lights, one green and
    one magenta. Tank is 60 gallon with driftwood.
    Water change 75% and 25% aged tap.
    I'm glad you took out most of the twigs sticking out horizontally, it made me a little nervous... I'm jealous of your sexy discus, all mine are older juvies ( teenagers? ) right now.... Good luck with them !!!

    Any current updates? The change you made to the background color and subsequent change (improved) behavior was brilliant.

    Yes, an update.

    Unfortunately, I have lost around three fish. I had 7 flourishing quite well.
    Then two came down ill quickly. I don't know what it was. They turned dark
    one day, two days later, died. I didn't even have chance to quarantine and
    give meds. I didn't even know what it could be. I figured stomach problems.
    Seemed like the flu was spreading. I have two remaining and waiting for
    John to come back live with some news and fish. The two are lonely and
    subdued. They need company.

    It's been awhile since I posted here so I thought I would give an update
    Life in the 60 gallon has been pretty good, although I have lost some of the
    heckles due to stomach problems I presume. All of a sudden they quit eating,
    darken up and dissipate away. It seems like I am plagued with the same problem.
    I have tried medication but things happen
    quickly. I think I should do a deworming treatment. Need to read up on it.
    I move the driftwood around a little
    every so often to change their environment, but all in all everything is thriving.
    I haven't had any other wilds, but I enjoy watching my Heckles, hardly any
    hostilities. Just Peace.

    I have some pics. I only have three fish now.
    They all seem happy. And love feeding time.
