Default updated pictures of my Tank and wild caughts

I added some more driftwood and removed some plants... Still not 100% happy on how the tank looks. Wild caughts are beautiful, but challenging.

Beautiful!

I love discus, just don't have room for them at the moment unfortunately.
Perhaps some taller plants to fill out the background?

I haven't known anyone to use a powerhead in a discus tank before, it looks like its for surface movement, correct? How does it affect your fish?

dw piece on the left looks nice, but the top sawed off part is showing. The one on the right is floating. You know the solution? Lots of plants

Thanks for all the compliments.

Some updated pictures with 4 more fish and no powerhead. Had some circulation issues but I have sorted those out now.

Gorgeous! I love the woodwork and the red one looks like a hybrid betweena wild discus and a San mere! Very nice....
Yeah, why the powerhead??? It looks small but, it will put on a air stone instead. Discus will not like current. In fact WD come from the Amazon from shallow water where there is decay and slow movement water..... I will take off the powerhead... just my 2 cents!
