Wow that`s perfect!

Any constructive criticism? NO, i wouldn`t change a thing!

I like the blue background as well, is that the wall behind the tank or some kind of stick on thing?
Either way it looks great :)

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

Good to see ya back around Staffie. :cheer:

Your tank is looking great. although i thought you got rid of your Oscars and went completely Discus. it looks like you kept the Oscar tank going.

I love the driftwood, white sand, and plants (especially the sword plant). the sand actually almost makes want to go back to sand; i have a similar setup. but with black gravel. ... I don't have any criticism at all. if you are thinking about tweaking the background a bit. I would say maybe just black; i think it would give the tank a different depth perception and a cool look.

CHeers :cheer:

Cheers guys and thanks cebo its good to be speaking to old names again..
I sold 6 of the original 10 discus I bought and just kept the two breeding pairs and they are in much smaller tanks for easier maintenance. This then left me with an empty 150 gallon again...so got the two cats first then 7 very small silver dollars ...then the pair of Oscars. and a ton of bog wood LOL

Of course this was all before Christmas and as you can see they have all grown ALOT!

The current background is a stick on vynle plastic stuff.. im still undecided what to do with it..black sounds like a good plan tho I must admit.

They look great Ryan! But we have already covered this! :D

I agree with Ryan, Black gives a great depth to the tank.. And it really makes the fish stand out!

Nice update and glad to see you back on board :) I was thinking that you got rid of your oscars as they destroys your filter but I see these are new ones couldnt be without the little oscars for long :)

I like the planting its simple but nice and agree that a black background would look good but it you are like me it seems alot of work to do the backgrounds once the tank is setup. :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)
