My old 75 FOWLR and Discus

Found some old pics when I had my 75 gallon as a FOWLR and my 92 as a discus/angel. Thought you might like it. And before anyone starts criticizing me, I know I had too many big fish in my 75. But I worked at a pet store and got everything for free when I first got into the hobby. I may have went a little overboard but you gotta admit...it looked nice!

Yes, I admit that you had quite the collection of S/W fish. What was the total stock list on the FW tank?
Do you recall? Nice discus specimens.

Very Nice

Discus are my favorite... I am getting ready to do a build thread on my 210 gallon tank and I want to
raise some Discus....
my question is this what type of substrate did you use?

I'm not shocked at the 75 gallon FOWLR, but I am surprised to see a Green Spotted Pufferfish in a Discus tank! LOL

My "complete" stock list was...uh...lol. Yeah. I think the only fish I was missing pics of was my Cinnamon Clown (which I actually had until recently; he went with a foster family) and my Sailfin. You can kinda see him in the pic if the puffer though.
As for the discus, loved them and they were great, but LORDY were they a lo of work. I'll probabl never do discus again unless I have a house with an RO unit hooked up.
I actually just used plain white gravel. To help with the water I had a HUGE piece of driftwood in there. It looked great...until an algae bloom stained most of it and the gravel green.
My green spotted puffer? Although it wasn't one of my better ideas, he sure looked neat in there. He really didn't bother anybody...except the powder blue. Look in the picture, and you'll see what I mean.
