You are correct guys, my tank was featured in PFK in October 03 and is still on their site I believe
The tank is 6x2x18" holds 510l
Lighting is 2x 125w MV pendants
Filtration is Fluval FX5
CO2 Hobbyfish Unit with JBL Diffuser
I am currently using the EasyLife range of ferts and am getting good results from them
Substrate is Dennerlle Deponit mix but this maybe changing too Tropica when I get the chance as I feel the Dennerlle is almost depleted as its been in their since Feb 03

Main fish are obviously the Discus but its also home too about 40 Garnet Tetras, a breeding shoal of Silver Tetras, Bristlenoses which have also multiplied in number and "Clownie" the Clown Loach who is atleast 10 years old !!!!!

It was featured in 2003 mate thats why you wont find it in 08
You can search on the site under "Discusjockey"
As for the plants in the tank I have
Echinodorus Magdalensis(carpet)
Echinodorus Grandiflorus (large plant out top)
Echinodorus Bleheri
Echinodorus Rubin
Heteranthera Zosterifolia is the stem plant at he back I think !!!!!!
