Discus Tank

839 4

Here is the tank as a whole. It has a pressurized cO2 system, 36″ Fluval Glo T5 Lighting, ADA Malaya Substrate, and a JBJ Reaction Filter with an Integrated UV Sterilyzer.

The tank has been running as is for about four weeks. All plants and most livestock was purchased at Arizona Nature Aquatics.

I am still having some issues with brown algae at this point. I am looking into getting a load of freshwater nerite snails to help with it.

But I am not sure that is the right way to go.

If you have any advice on how to rid the tank of the algae, it would be greatly appreciated!!

So... what do you think? Please leave me a comment or give me a


  • johnarthur: WOW! That’s one beautiful aquarium.
    Keeping demanding plants while controlling algae growth is a balancing act. Mystery snails are good algae eaters, but they also add to the biological load.
  • NeonAngelfish: Thanks John! :)
    And yeah, I was looking into both those and nerite snails. As I do have some space left. So, I may or may not get some, depends on whether or not the guy at the fish shop can get me a deal on the nerites.
  • johnarthur: There is always good ole Aquabid, and snails don’t cost much to ship.
  • NeonAngelfish: Mmm, good point. Didn’t think about that. xD
