Got permanent plumbing installed to and from the tank. Using all tap water now.
Water changes are a breeze now. 20% water change which is 500 liters takes just 10 to 15 mins.

The submersed portion of the pipes were painted black using waterproof rubber paint. The straight pipe on the left is for the outlet which has an inline pump and drains into the garden downstairs. The pipe on the right is for the inlet coming from an overhead tank.

Started dosing dry ferts at around 1/3rd EI dosing since a week.

The Discus are growing very well and i'm genuinely surprised by how well they are turning out :mrgreen: all of the 30 discus seem to be doing good.
Got a chance to measure one of the discus recently when it jumped into a net that i use to feed.. measured 4.75" . Most of the discus are at about this size. 4 of them though... are huuge.. probably 6". Need to catch em and measure to be sure. and the runts are still runts :)) about 4 are smaller than the rest.
Its been 6 months since i added the discus at about 1.5" to 2" size. they are probably 9 months old now. Hopefully they will grow to their full potential for another year :)

New underwater video. Watch in HD. Enjoy :)

This is my first video of the tank shot with my new Gopro. Will post better videos soon ;)

I wanted to grow my discus good this time ( my previous attempt ended with a columnaris outbreak). Wanted to do things right. Feeding about 4 to 8 times a day with water changes thrice a week(25 to 50%) and i kinda ignored the plants.. no regular dosing, less CO2 and tank temp around 30C. So the plants are doing horribly. just started decreasing the temperature and new growth has appeared.
The geophagus grew huge. the biggest is around 8"
The fire eel has grown in length and girth. Hand feeding it now :D
Bonus Video ;)
