    I think your tank has a lot of potential, and so far it looks good! Is there any specific reason why you placed the light on one side?

    Tell me about it! o_O They cost a fortune to buy, and eat about £40 worth of beefheart a month! But I absolutely love them! Got 6 more little guys from DevotelyDiscus yesterday actually. :)

    Hello! Not many discus keepers here at the moment, I have 15 stendkers but I am a novice as well. There are people here who used to keep discus and the experience. I don't think it would be a waste of time, it's all about learning and experience, so go for it and please share your journey. There...

    Complete rescape, with different wood but same plants. The wood was in discus tank originally, I swapped them, kept the epis that were on it. New wood is slightly too big for the 600, but I think it would do. Overal, spent no money for rescape, I will get some hairgrass for the front later. No...

    When can I add amano shrimp and how many?

    Personally I would put them in now then, assuming you are doing 50% changes, you should be fine. I never had problems with that.

    When can I add amano shrimp and how many?

    Also depends on your frequency of water changes. If you let water sit there for a while, it will get toxic very quickly. I personally put in amanos after first week, while doing water changes every other day.

    25L Betta tank, first go at a "scape"

    Also think about where the filter will go, where the heater will be, in a small tank it can be an eye sore, or can be hidden behind some stems. Another thing to consider is the flow. Some Bettas ok with medium flow, my plakat used to love it, but new one hates as he is full moon with full...

    Have you tried to do a pH profile? Do you get 1 unit drop in pH? How about the flow in the tank? I would personally remove those plants and add more plants increasing the plant mass, and do pH profiles until you see 1 unit drop consistently. Maybe lower the light intensity for a while and ramp...

    Flow Recommendations

    Depends on if you use Lilly pipes, or spray bar. If you will use a surface skimmer? I would go with 307 and a ehiem surface skimmer to begin with, pointing opposite directions, making a swirl around the tank and see if you have any dead spots. You can always get the circulation pumps later.
