#27: 325L Aquatic Garden Discus sunset

J.W. Esselaar Amsterdam, Netherlands


What a great tank to show off the Pidgeonblood discus! The bright hues of the green and red go well with the bright color of the fish. It would likely be better for the fish if there were some larger open portion of the substrate for them to pick at food. Let the glosso fill in more as well. The spotty look of it makes a poor impression. A full head-on shot of the aquarium would have made judging a lot easier and may have garnered more points.

The use of Riccia in Discus tank is not good for long term keeping.

You obviously have a healthy vibrant tank. Unfortunately with no clear view of the full tank it is just about impossible to judge the composition.
