    Thanks Leslie!

    I am still waiting for my chain swords front and center to grow out more... That actually is one reason I opened up the middle is they started filling in the small area they had... It is hard to believe a few months ago I only had about 5 of those plants... I actually thought I was going to loose them all, then they started duplicating like crazy!!

    The wife and I spent the past few days over at my friends house...

    When I got back I found my sickly blue turquoise in the tank dead..... I knew it was going to happen as she had a BAD case of fin-rot I could not fix.... was not eating well and was thin as paper and always stressed... She was also REALLY stunted and was the bullied "runt" of the tank even though she was not the smallest.

    I am shocked still that she lasted as long as she did... I think I said a month or 2 ago I did not expect her to live... For some reason I have such a hard time keeping Female Discus :confused:

    Thank you Dawn and Buzz... the red ones are gone from this tank... I got to get an updated photo of the tank with the natural discus in the tank and the domesticated red ones not there...

    The reds are now in the 55 gallon tank to themselves...

    Those 4 in the 55... yeah they seem happy again to be in the 125 again and they look SO much better in it (it has been a while since I have been home to watch them) and the 5 red ones in the 55... well I dont think they know whats going on...

    The reason I did it was feeding... It was A PAIN to feed with the Heckels split up between 2 tanks... all the reds would eat dry food... and the Heckels ONLY eat frozen and dont compete well with the domestics...

    I still have 2 domestics in the 125 but they blend well with the wilds... there is no bright colors in the tank... the "show fish" in the 125 is that Mayan Jade.... Now I feed frozen ONLY to the 125 and dry food to the 55... saves me a trip from the freezer upstairs... lol

    Re: 125 Planted Disucs Tank

    Here is the latest picture of my 125... I still have to clean my Emporer Filter (the one in the middle) but I wont do that for another week as I just cleaned my Canister Filter last night and replaced the media...

    Also I have not really finished aquascaping this tank after pulling the Stargrass... still trying to figure out where I want the driftwood as there are a few pieces I want to move and some I like where they are... Too many ideas!

    Also dont mind the tank and the algae... it is due soon for another MAJOR cleaning to push the algae population back again... I really did not do much cleaning yesterday when I changed the water, vacuumed the sand and pulled out the Stargrass (the stargrass I took out filled a 5 gallon bucket! lmao)

    My water is NOT clear... :) It looks like tea... but I dont really have any debris floating thanks to my Magnum 350. And there is not a whole lot of Aquascaping on this tank after pulling the plants.... still have more work to do... just too lazy right now.. :confused:

    Thanks!

    Actually looking over my older pictures I MIGHT revert back to my original hardscape plan like what is seen in the first picture on page one of this thread....

    Personally I like the left back corner of the tank now but the rest of the tank seems a little bare.
