This tank ran as a planted discus tank for about 2 years. It was a failure and I now have first hand experience as to why it failed. The reasons are very specific.
Why planted discus tanks didn't work for me:
Anyways, the list goes on. As much as planted tanks are beautiful, and discus are beautiful. I had to choose my battle.
This is a display tank, it needs to be in show quality. If it's in shambles, it becomes a huge (literally) eye sore.
Reducing the maintenance requirements yet having the tank crystal clear and beautiful is my goal for this next stage of this 180g.
A clean tank that is minimialistic is more beauitful than a dirty/algae tank that is jammed packed.
Maintenance on this tank is about 2 hours a week I'd say.
It's medium light, medium co2 tank. No ferts.
