♥ Discus hardscapes

By Leonard Ho - Posted Oct 19, 2016 09:00 AM
The tank style I've always wanted set up but somehow have never gotten around to in my three decades in this hobby is a discus hardscape. A dramatic earthtone abboreal graveyard decorated with splashes of vibrant color with mellow personalities ... what's not to love?


For longtime readers of Advanced Aquarist (bless your soul), you may recall that discus are the fish that inspired me to become a "serious" fishkeeper.  It's been decades since I've kept discus, but videos like this are really renewing my passion for these fish.  Marrying discus to low-maintenance hardscapes (simply rocks and driftwood that are beautifully composed) adds to their appeal.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
