    A while ago I got rid of my wild discus and swapped them for cardinals. Sacrilege I know but they are a lot less work and still give a nice effect:

    There is somewhere around 110 in the video. I did have more but I had a few issues with them and lost a good few. The tank is 200x65x65cm.

    Another beautiful set-up Dave, the colours must be stunning to watch with this group,and the movement...feeding time must be frantic.
    Love it

    It looks superb when they start moving together as a unit which they do quite a bit, especially if there is movement near the tank, or a bristlenose scuffles across the background.

    Hi Artur the tree trunk at the back is an artificial Back to Nature Amazonas 3D background. The thin twigs dangling from the top are Birch. The larger pieces of wood on the sand are Hawthorne.
