Fish Kept: There are two larger Red Turquoise Discus and one new baby Brilliant Turquoise Discus. One Ornate Cory Cat and one Skunk Cory Cat (bottom feeders-great vacuum for discus!). Two Orange Bee Shrimp.
Corals/Plants: There are many assortments of plants that I've tried to include in this tank. Amazon swords, Hornwort, Telanthera Rosefolia, Ludwigia Peruensis, and Wendtii Bronze are just a few. There are many more to come!
Tank Size: 45 gallons
Advice: 86ºF seems to work great with plants and Discus. Water changes should be done regularly. More often if you don't have sufficient filteration. Discus require a very clean environment. 10k Metal Halide lighting seems to work great for plants.

About Yourself: We are a small family living in a apartment that does not allow cats or dogs. Because we wanted some type of pet for our 5 year old son, Nolan, we decided fish were the best option. It has been a wonderful experience of education for the whole family, and we are now fish hobbyists.
Fish Kept: It all started with our red Betta (Mr. Betta). Since then, we have added a Marigold Sword-tail (Dennis), a Dalmation Mollie (Molly), a Dwarf Gourami (Julius), a Chinese Sucker fish (Sally), 2) yellow Snails (Gary and Yoda) and a black Snail (un-named)
Corals/Plants: We currently only have artificial plants, but to add live plants after getting more experience and education.
Tank Size: 10 gallons
Advice: Do your homework, ESTABLISH YOUR TANK at least a week prior to introducing the fish. ADD ONLY ONE AND TWO FISH AT A TIME. Adding too many fish at the same time can make the ammonia levels skyrocket in the tank, thus killing the fish!
