I like your tank very much. It could use a little more definition, though, and I wish you'd used wild-type discus!

Additional Information
The Aquarium was set up in 2000 and is lit by 0.375 W/l in conversion. It is fertilised by a fertiliser I made myself based on the composition of PMDD, enriched by Fe 2+ and Mg 2+ as well as NO3. In addition the CO2 which is produced by the rection of fermentation (DIY) is supplied from a bottle. 20% of the water is changed every 2-3 weeks (50% distilled, 50% tap water). The water’s parameters in the aquarium are : KH=7, GH=12, daytime pH=6,8 (the rest is uncontrolled).
