After so many thumbs ups,here's a thumbs down for you Rahul!
I simply loved your planted tank,felt O.K. about the juveniles in the barebottom tank but really felt sorry about the inhabitants of the planted tank.None of them are in a shape which we might term as happy.I,just like Ratheesh loved the standing egg shape of the BD but the darkened colours show the stress level.Darkened and peppered fishes simply destroy the beauty of your beautiful tank.
Yes,I have my reservations about planted discus tanks and have always maintained my tough stand against them in many posts of mine.To highlight my reason I would request everyone to just recheck the reactions of the members of the barebottom and planted tanks in the video.Notice the contrasting reactions of the BB inhabitants when they come to the front of the tank to beg for food (a very desirable natural instinct of a discus juvenile) and that of their nervous planted tank counterparts.
This is too early a stage for a discus to be introduced in a planted environment and you are paving the way for a bunch of stunted fishes.I sincerely hope that my unfavorable comments are taken in the right spirit as they will reap richer dividends for you than customary appreciations.
