Ummm, not sure what you are talking about, my friend. Do you know who I am or something? These are my works. I just thought I'd share my work on more forums, maybe start some productive dialog or help others out. I see a lot of folks needing serious help out there I'd like to assist them in any way I can (like all the other "experts" out there) in achieving greater success and ultimately expanding the hobby.

Such skeptics!
I don't know what to tell you- my name is Jeffrey Senske and I am the owner of Aquarium Design Group in Houston, TX and these are some of my personal tanks. I was trying to be a little more anonymous here, but so much for that! :cool:

A little research and you will see.

Gosh I hoped to talk about aquascaping and aquarium-keeping, not having to prove my identity! :cry:

I want to talk! What size is the tank and what kind of filtration are you running on it?
Maintenance schedule as far as water changes, etc. Details, details, details!

Thanks Kymmie! My pleasure.

The tank is 48" X 30" x 30". It has 2- Eheim 2262 with Hydor inline heaters. Filter media is about 80% biological media (Eheim Ehfi-substrat), 10% mechanical (classic bonded pad), and 10% Purigen- an amazing filter media produced by SeaChem.

Water temp is 82 F. Water changes are performed once per week, about 75%, with a good flushing (where we change over 100% of the water) about once per month (we leave the fish in the aquarium when we do this by using our special water change/maintenance kit system). :tongue:

My friend, you are sadly sadly mistaken. Aqua FOREST is in San Francisco, and it is owned by brothers George and Steven Lo. They, like us here at ADG, are Aqua Design Amano distributors and personal friends of mine. I, Jeff Senske, own Aquarium Design Group in Houston.

I don't much appreciate the accusation that I am a liar, and you clearly do not know me!

Now if we could please turn the discussion to aquascaping and aquarium-keeping, that's what we are all here for! :wave:

Thanks guys.

The tank is about 190 gallons. (A simple way to estimate the volume when you know the dimensions in inches is L X W X H then divide by 231).

The small schooling fish are classic head and tailight tetras.

Welcome to the forum.The Discus in the photo submitted are some of the best looking Discus I have seen and the aquascape is truly outstanding.
I personally would have chosen tetra's such as Cardinal's and cory's such as Sterbai who fair much better over the long haul in warm waters that Discus appreciate but perhaps,,, The fish selected were for photo's ?
In any event, tank looks outstanding!:cool:

I really love this tank too. I'd like to see a video of it, with the fish swimming, as those Discus are spectacular. In light of my cyano outbreak and seeing how nice a hardscape can look I'm toying with the idea. 1077, what do you think?? I wonder how badly my shoal of Discus would miss their planted tank in favor of a tank that looks like this one??

Kymmie, That is tough to answer at least for me. I kept Discus over play sand with large pieces of driftwood and some large smooth river stones and they did well but anytime someone so much as farted,they would head for cover of the driftwood pieces and seemingly took hours before they would venture back out.
I then placed large fake plant's along the back glass thinking they would feel more comfortable, and they quickly retreated to this area and spent a good portion of the day behind the plant's.
Seems as if I turned on a different lamp of an evening than the one normally on,,they would get all in a tither.
Your fish may not be as big of wimps,and would do fine in such a set up. Mine spent much of their time seeking new ways to make me nervous and were quite successful.:roll:
