Thanks bro. One of the five RCS already ventured outside his safe zone for a few days and now gone MIA ha ha...I hope it's not KIA.

I'm still growing those HC you gave me....I got the tank, the drift wood, the light and filters ready - ain't got a heater and substrate yet and i'm talking to Beijing08 about those yellow shrimps he's selling.

Your tank is coming a long nicely. You may be able to fit a couple more discus in there if you keep up with your waterchanges nicely.

Maybe one more Brian....man, I always say that: 1 more and now I got 5 he he...It's the only vice I have...I think i'm becoming an aquaholic ha ha.

Haha, I had about 10-12 adults in a single 55 gal back when I had an assload of discus.

I'm sure you'll be able to work with 6-8 of them in there if you wanted to.
