Just got a 60 gallon hexagon and don't know what to do with it Razz. Thinking of making it a planted discus tank Smile. What do you guys think I should do? Any ideas or suggestion is welcome.

You should sell it to me!! LOL!! I LOVE hex tanks, and bow fronts!
Discus would be cool, or move your Angels into it. They would look awesome cause they are such "tall" fish. If I can ever get these GLOs to breed again...they would be a great addition.
Be sure to post pics of the work in progress! Congrats on the new score!

This is my first Hexagon tank Smile I have had bow front before its cewl but not as cewl has hexagon tank. So many possibilities so little space Razz @Doxie(Julia) hmm...I'm actually thinking of upgrading my 55 for something bigger since my stand can handle about 100 gallon. I'm still waiting on your glofish babies >.> I jst got more DD eggs Razz My DD parents are really good parents considering they are still very young pair. Still having some fungus problems but been using ich-x. @Alowishus come join the club bro and get a bow font or hexa hehe..This is kind of the vision I have at the moment but now sure how to achieve it since its a hexagon tank http://s1105.beta.photobucket.com/user/discuspaul/media/FTS-Osaka260/CopyofFTS-saka260007.jpg.html?sort=3&o=7

I know skhool of fish has nice discus Very Happy for decent price. I know one of my employee named Robert(if any 1 knows him ) who also sells discus. I will look around before making any decision. But I'm thinking of changing my ph or just talk to some experienced discus keeper. Should I or should I not change my ph?? Currently my ph is 7.6 that's a little too high for discus I think. Bill what is your thought on changing ph??

Everything I've read tells me that while the PH at 7.6 is a bit higher than their native habitat, the key issue is the stability of the PH. Plus, an overwhelming majority, if not over 90%, of Discus you might acquire, other than through special order, aren't wild-caught's and will generally come from an assortment of PH levels.
I'm lucky in that my tap is just over 7 but magically drops into the low 6's over time in the tank. I used to collect dropped oak leaves from the woods around my home, bundle the stems with a rubber band and sorta plant the stem bunch in the substrate.

He breeds flower horns and discuss from what he told me. He seems to be good friends with rama from what he told me. I knew that for ph the best thing to do is keep it stable but most of the people I know that keep discus like to lower their ph.
