    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 !!!!!!

    had a feeling magdalensis was your forground plant but i wasnt sure.looks impressive!
    didnt think your background plant was zesteflora though {looked more exotic than that in photo} Ithought it was a plant i had never seen before!.What a beautiful plant !.I new about pfk 2003 my mistake.
    thanks jason
