An enormous amount of work and detail has gone into the aquascaping of the tank. The tank itself has a very natural look to it; all fishes have been adequate room to set-up territories and safe retreats. Caves and secluded areas were designed in a way that you can see the fish and they don’t disappear never to be seen again. Plants have been used to hide the majority of in tank equipment. It is a soft water tank with regular water changes using RO/DI water. It truly is a beautiful, centerpiece display tank which is why I’d like to first offer the entire set-up as a package even though I’m guessing it is a long shot someone will need a whole set-up. All the equipment is in excellent, clean condition and all livestock is happy and healthy. All the discus as well as the Adonis pleco are incredibly social, always at the front of the tank watching what is going on in the room and begging for food :D ; The birchirs come out regularly at feeding times so you truly can observe and enjoy all the fish.

I’m very attached to all my fish and consider them my pets. I can give a detailed description of their personalities, pecking order, favorite foods and general diet if you’d like that much detail :)

Because it is a large tank, the water parameters are incredibly stable. The huge filter and UV sterilizer keep the water crystal clean. Even though I hear that discus are incredibly sensitive, my water changes only happen about once every week to two weeks and I’ve not seen any adverse effects. And it certainly does not stop the blue pair from spawning.

The reason the tank is being sold is because I need to lessen the amount of time I spend maintaining all my tanks and increase the time I have with my children. It’s time to venture into more activities and hobbies, perhaps even get a puppy, who knows. I will still have one or two smaller tanks so I’m not getting out of the hobby entirely ;) … just downsizing.

* Package price for the entire system is $2000. Almost half the price is attributed to the exceptional livestock. The remaining amount covers tank, stand, canopy, and equipment.
