 Its  a  mansion  being  set  for  the  king.  Looking  forward  to  having  discus  in  them.  And  yes  as  Swarendu  mentioned  BD  with  red  iris  and  Cobalt  (my  fav  -  even  though  they  are  outdated  Razz)  will  look  into  it.
 
 Please  avoid  PB  based  discus  as  they  tend  to  show  peppering.  
 
 BTW,  from  where  did  you  source  the  lime  stones?
 
 All  the  best.

 Thanks  Adesh.You  most  welcome  home  sometime.come  over  we  can  sit   and  maybe  you  can  give  me  some  pointers  on  how  to  go  about  it.do  come  and  get  shubhankar  along  maybe  the  tank  would  look  better  through  his  lense!
 The  stones  were  bought  from  some  place  in  mumbai  i  dont  remember  the  shop.had  bought  them  for  my  goldfish  tank  but  could  not  find  anything  else  so  but  these  in.

 Hi  Hamza,
 
 Nice  started  man.
 
 After  reading  whole  thread  and  from  my  personal  experience  here  is  my  views.
 
 >  I  Think  Blue  Diamond  is  right  choice  (12-15  pices  is  a  nice  group).  They  look  just  awasome  in  a  group.  If  possible  have  a  look  the  first  book  of  Heiko  where  he  made  a  biotope  with  BD  only.  Swarnendu  is  100%  right.  Don't  keep  any  red  color  discus  as  Adesh  said.
 
 >  I  feel  you  can  bring  more  natural  look  in  your  tank.  Don't  blindly  follow  anybody.  Because  I  know
 you  can  do  it.  Please  have  a  look  biotopes  of  Heiko.  
 
 >  No  Shrimp  at  all.  Try  to  keep  only  Cardinal  Tetra.  Otherwise  it  will  mix  up.  
 
 >  Make  some  slope  of  sands  and  make  little  less  thickness  of  sandbase
 
 >  As  swarnendu  says  if  posible  2mm  to  4  mm  gravel  will  be  far  better  than  the  fine  sand.
 
 >  Even  you  can  keep  some  Cichilid  those  are  less  aggresive.  More  or  less  in  all  biotope  of  Heiko  I  have  seen  the  Cichilid  are  there.
 
 >  Keep  some  Corry  like  Julie,  Panda  etc.  
 
 
 I  am  sure  you  will  be  successful  in  your  mission.  Keep  going  man........
 
 Best  of  luck

 At  last  the  brewing  strom  is  over..  Clapping  
 
 A  beautiful  setup  for  the  Discus  as  per  my  view  and  not  going  in  the  details  as  many  of  the  experts  have  already  commented..
 A  Shoal  of  Discus  will  be  a  eyecandy  in  that  huge  tank..Happy  fish  keeping..
 
 Waiting  with  loads  of  patience  Very Happy

 Hamza,  few  more  points
 
 1.  Rummy  nose  -  will  soon  become  good  diet  for  your  discus.  This  is  coming  from  my  experience  -  although  i  had  them  in  4.5  ftr  tank.
 2.  Lime  stone  -  it  will  increase  hardness  which  is  not  good  for  discus.  You  can  give  away  those  to  me  Smile  (BTW,  the  hardness  factor  is  true  -  not  because  I  want  to  get  hold  of  lime  stone  I'm  misleading  you  Razz)
 3.  Cories  is  a  good  choice  as  cleaner  crew.
 4.  Ramirezi  can  also  be  introduced  as  tank  mates  for  discus.
 5.  And  about  the  scape,  go  biotope  way.

 hi  Adesh
 i  have  seen  rummy  nose  been  kept  with  discus.so  have  taken  a  chance  lets  see.
 Will  hunt  for  different  stones  but  till  then  these  would  have  to  do.
 yup  cories  gone  in  today
 dont  wanna  clutter  the  tank  too  much  hence  only  rummy  nose  and  discus
 i  will  go  biotope  even  if  this  tank  is  a  success
 
 everyone  here  has  been  telling  me  to  go  biotope  but  am  sure  most  of  you  would  agree  that  the  domesticated  strains  of  discus  wont  go  with  a  biotope..and  the  scene  for  wild  discus  in  India  is  very  sad  and  a  few  quality  ones  are  out  of  my  reach  at  the  moment.
 thanks
 Hamza

 Nice  Hamza  ...  Keep  posting  ...  Will  enjoy  watching  this  thread  ...
 Might  I  suggest  an  addition  of  a  couple  of  banjo  cats  ...  They're  very  useful  ...  Especially  at  getting  to  uneaten  food  stuck  in  your  gravel  since  they  like  to  bury  themselves  a  lot  ...
 They're  tough  and  a  no  issue  fish  ...
 Foir  the  most  part  though  u  won't  see  them  a  lot  since  they  will  venture  out  when  its  dark

 Hi  Hamza,
 
 Not  fully  agree  with  you.  If  you  make  a  biotope  it  does  not  mean  that  you  have  to  keep  Wild  Discus.  I  have  seen  some  biotope  with  Blue  Turq.,  Blue  Diamond,  Alenquer  etc.  etc.
 
 Also  my  suggestion  is  rearrange  the  scape  so  that  it  look  more  natural.  Not  that  you  have  to  transfer  the  setup  as  a  biotope.  Why  I  am  saying  because  you  have  that  talent  to  do  that.  That's  all.  It's  just  my  personal  opinion.
 
 Thanks

 @all  thanks
 no  wont  be  doing  anything  to  this  setup  now  as  am  working  on  a  few  other  3  foot  tanks  at  home  and  want  them  finished  as  well.so  this  setup  will  stay  for  a  while  at  least.will  transform  the  whole  think  in  a  year  or  so.
