You have beautiful tank! It’s my inspiration!
How do you keep your water so clearly?
Is it because of the filters?
And another thing, how do you keep the plants so big and green? Do you furtilaz?

Hi I really like simplicity of this tank and I do like the way the colours of the fish are rendered but what is the exact type of lighting You use?

Has it been hard to grow this fish in a tank that isn't bare bottom?

Well done PlantedMN. Your passion is evident in the quality of your tanks, I can almost see the smile on your discus faces. I have just purchased an RO/DI unit as my water is very hard, I look forward to stabilizing my tank and keeping some beautiful discus happy. I hope I can keep the balance right.

Are you from Minnesota? Just wondering because of the name. Awesome discus! I'm just getting into discus. I have 3 so far. Doing well.

Looks great! Is there a reason you don't have any dither fish i.e. card's etc?  I only ask because a lot of Discus tanks that I've come across have some sort of dither's.

Appreciate the answer. Keep up the great videos, love looking at Discus tanks.

It all comes down to personal taste and choice.  There are numerous discus keepers that will keep a pure "discus only" tank, and others who prefer a community tank look with the discus being the centerpiece fish.  I wanted a pure discus tank.  The dithers really are more for aesthetics, and if you overfeed or feed too much too fast, the dithers will help with the smaller pieces the discus ignore.  Many think dithers help keep the discus calm, however this is no solid proof of this so it remains debatable.  Thanks for your question.

Not yet.  didn't win the contest and I do not have the time and extra tanks to do at this time.  I would still like to at some point.  Results could be interesting.

Thank you, it is.  They all get along great.  Almost hate the thought of adding new fish as it could stir up some aggression issues.

Yes I still have the shrimp tank.  Just been busy lately with little time for youtube.  Once summer is over here in Minnesota and we are stuck inside for 6 months, trust me, I will make more videos.

Nice update! Get a valentine and blushing red if you want red. My discus tank is slowly converting to red :)

That's too bad. I had a few that I lost this way too. Wait for the next shipment from Kenny. :)

Too late.  He didn't eat for over a month. He died today.  I just placed an order with Kens a few days ago.  Wish I had this added to my order.  Oh well, thanks for the advice.

+PlantedMN My Red is doing awesome, eating like crazy. But it did develop peppering. If you haven't tried yet. Get Ken's Metro+Garlic, vitamin and immune booster flakes for your sick fish. It'll help out your fish if it's still eating. 
Tom's Fish Tanks
Tom's Fish Tanks - 6 years ago
I will keep that in mind.  How is your Red Eagle doing?  Mine has spent more time in the Hospital tank than in the show tank.  Now sure what that fish's problem is.

Great changes to the tank and the Discus look even better. What's the name of the white one with the red spots?

Beautiful Discus but in my opinion the new color varieties are artificial clones of what is, and remains a beautiful fish I am speaking  of the original Syphysodon aequifasciata  axelrodi,(The Brown Discus) and S. aequifasciata haraldi ( The Blue
Discus) the original wild color varieties.  A part of the hobby which may have been before your time but the fish, for those who could afford them were a sight to behold!  I don't want this to be considered a slight towards your tank, I think your fish and tank are. stunning.  I just find the original fish far more beautiful. 
jeremiemcd - 6 years ago
I agree with you Phil, the new strains that have been bred are beautiful, I'm particularly attached to the wild heckles, but I agree with MN if your doing a biotope I would go with the wild discus, but for MN look I feel that it is more eye appealing with all the colors, Great tank and awesome work mn, your fish look really healthy, keep up the great work=)
Tom's Fish Tanks
Tom's Fish Tanks - 6 years ago
I totally understand what you are saying. I have been in the hobby for over 40 years and have great appreciation for the true wild discus strains.  I agree that the "Skittles" discus are somewhat superficial, but they still make a nice display.  A native biotope and wild discus would be the ultimate discus tank for me.

Still one of my favorite tanks on YouTube! Love the discus!!If you don't have a blushing red, you should get one from Kenny. Simply stunning! Just tell him you are wanting some really nice red fish, I'm sure he will hook you up. :)
Tom's Fish Tanks
Tom's Fish Tanks - 6 years ago
Thanks Amber.  I do have a blushing red from Kenny in my back room.  It isn't nearly as nice of a specimen as yours. 
Ruben - 6 years ago
The Discus tank is looks better with the changes you made to it. Sometimes less is better and it's easier to clean.

With these fish is it all about tank hygiene and water quality.  I only wish I would have pulled the extra plants sooner.

+PlantedMN what's your lighting setup, if you don't mind me asking :) I took your recommendation on using EI dosing and my plants have really started taking off! I just upgraded from current sat+ to the ecoxotic e-120. I'm seeing a response almost instantly!
