You've got a lot of tanks. Where do you keep them all? Do you use pressurized CO2 in any of them? What do you use as substrate? Do you dose them with anything? Do you have any plant trimmings currently for sale?
By the way, your tanks are beautiful. It must take you a lot of time to care for them.
I really like the second last one.

I think I have about 8 on the go; about 7 more than what the wife wants

Each tank is using pressurized CO2 except for one 5' tank(the last pic). I use ferts on each one except the 5'. I am using eco, flourite and Shultz in the various tanks; I like the eco the most. I am just in the process of converting the main tank to eco. having to buy 8-10 bags of the stuff really sucks though. Anyone out there willing to provide a bulk discount on eco (hint hint)? The lights are either power compacts or T5HO's.

I just sold 2 packages of plants but I have a butt load of christmas moss, dwarf sagittaria and glosso for sale as a package right now in the classifieds.

Oh yes, the second last pic is a tank that I had my chemistry class setup and maintain at school.

JRS wicked aquascaping-

However folks although they will survive, clown loaches do require a much higher level of current than discus to be happy.

Please visit the forums at www.loaches.com for your questions. It is THE global source for loach info.

Not a single person who has clowns on there DOESNT normally grow them to 12"+

There are hundreds of species of pleco, cory, aspidora, brochis, and more catfish that would be fine with discus and more appropriate IMO.
