My first post on the Discus tank
Here is my first post again. The question about plants with discus was just
asking for personal opinions. I already sure which plants I want in the
tank. The lighting for such a large tank is my main concern.
>I have just purchased a 125 gallon tank that I would like to have heavily
planted and set up with 4-6 Discus, a couple dozen Cardinal Tetras and a
handful of other Amazon fish species. This will be my second planted tank
I am building a canopy for the tank and need help with choosing and
installing the lighting. If anyone can point me to a site or give me
information on lighting a 6 foot long tank, it would be very helpful. I
don't know what ballasts or how many to use, or what size lighting to
install with what number of bulbs. I am also wondering how Discus friendly
VHO fluorescent lighting is.
A recommendation of plants to handle water with a pH of 6.5, very very soft
and 84* (28*C) temps would be appreciated also.
Just saw a site that recommends installing Styrofoam on the sides of the
tank and sticking plants into the foam. Does this work?
Thanks a lot
