Aunt Kymmie: I have a planted 90 gallon with a 40 gallon sump. I have gotten hold of a local breeder like within the same zip code even who does all his discus with dechlorinated tap water which is cool since we have a ph around 8.3 and fairly hard water. For example, I have a successful reef tank and do not add anything for PH and hardness to my water.
Job situation has the project on hold for now as I might or might not have a job and/or a place to work next week depending on how our inspection goes tomorrow. If the contract is resigned I likely will get 5 discus at the beginning of August. If not so good then i will be tearing down the whole setup along with the reef tank and evacuate to better waters. Currently the tank has three angels(which will go before the discus arrive), a single ram(the only survivor of 8 I got too soon when the tank was new) a pearl guorami, 5 harlequin rasbora who think they are rams(they school with the ram and vice versa), a bristlenose pleco, 2 farawellas, a few cories and a few ottos. A large piece of driftwood and a smaller piece plus alot of big leafed plants. For some reason I cannot get ground cover plants to grow :/

I hope your inspection goes well, holding good thoughts!
I too, have a planted 100gl discus tank with discus raised from a local breeder in our local San Diego tap water. San Diego has water as hard as concrete with a ph of 8.0. I don't buffer my water and my discus are now spawning (which is a good and bad thing). If you can get homegrown discus, not imported, your fish will do prefectly fine! I hope your able to get a discus tank going, I really enjoy mine.

For long hoses, and i'm not sure how to do this, all you need to do is thread something through the hose, a long rod or something, attach the brush to one and and just pull it through. that would clean the entire hose out.
