    Hi all
    I have been a fish keeper for over 25 years mainly salt water fish and corals. About 7 years ago I did set up a planted discus set up but even though it was successful I soon went back to a full reef.
    I am now ready to return to a calmer tank with less equipment so I will convert my tank to a Amazon type one.
    My tanks dimensions are 40'' x30''h x 28'' wide with a sump 33'' x19h x17''wide. Around 115 gallons.
    I am hoping to keep 7 discus and 2 shoals of smaller fish. i.e Cardinals and Rummy Nose tetras in a planted set up with Co2.
    Does this sound ok ?
    Thanks

    Sounds fine. Could squeeze a few more in that setup but a slice of the Amazon always looks better IMO when understated. Look forward to pics.......and welcome on board :)
